About QS Asia

We Build Bridges to Connect the World to You


QS Asia is the regional subsidiary of QS Quacquarelli Symonds, the producers of the widely respected QS World University Rankings as well as various regional and subject rankings.

Having provided strategic solutions to universities for their brand exposure and international recognition for more than a decade, QS Asia is indeed the best advisor Asian, Middle Eastern and African universities can consult when seeking the fastest and most cost-effective globalisation measures. Established in Asia and run by people from the same continent, QS Asia commits itself to manifesting Asian higher education excellence to the rest of the world. This is achieved through innovative conferences, well-organised exhibitions, unique seminars and specialised summits, as well as publications that are wide-ranging in content and extensive in global distribution.

QS-APPLE Organisational Structure

QS's permanent staff, based in Singapore and London, are responsible for the planning and implementation of the conference and exhibition. There is a chair of the conference programme appointed by QS from the academic community, which plays a major role in the fulfilment of QS-APPLE's objectives.

Organising Partner

For each annual QS-APPLE, a university in the host country is appointed to be our local supporting partner. The partner carries out operational and promotional functions, and contributes to the speaking programme in return for the considerable global promotion and prestige that the role brings with it.

Please contact Mandy Mok (mm@qs.com) if your institution would like to be considered.
