13th QS-APPLE: A reflection on the growing importance of higher education in East Asia today

The 13th QS-APPLE conference and exhibition successfully concluded on 24 November 2017 in Taichung, Taiwan. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all participants for your continuous support towards this dynamic event!

The conference is more than just sessions and workshops; it also helps bring together outstanding academics from across the globe, allowing them the rare opportunity to network, expand their professional circle and secure partnership deals with universities from other parts of the world.

This year’s conference gathered over 400 academics from 143 institutions in 30 countries. Participants not only gained valuable insights and shared the latest knowledge through the interactive and engaging conference programme, but also expanded their professional network through various social activities. In addition, a total of 69 papers were presented during plenary and parallel sessions, and exhibitors from various universities around the world had the opportunity to showcase their universities’ offerings to participants at the QS Hub – Exhibition. We are delighted to have exhibitors from Columbia and Ecuador joining us for the first time at this leading global event as well!

The Rankings Masterclass was very informative and I look forward to attending the next one” – Professor Seiichi Ishikawa at Kindai University, Japan
