This year’s Higher Education World Summit was held in Melbourne, Australia from the 30th of September till the 2nd of October.

The summit brings together global leaders from different fields of higher education to learn, network and share their knowledge and experiences.


The delegates of the summit were also among the first to have a detailed look at the results of The 2015-2016 World University Rankings.
