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 Asia events are organised on behalf of QS Education Trust which

  • Provides and sources education scholarships for international students;
  • Governs all QS events, including QS-APPLE and QS-MAPLE conferences as well as QS WorldClass and QS in conversation seminars; and
  • Promotes other philanthropic and social aspects of international education on a global scale and with a special focus on Asia, Middle East and Africa.

QS Education Trust funds its scholarship projects through the income generated by the delegate registration fees of QS events, including QS-APPLE and QS-MAPLE.

Each year any surplus revenue generated from these events is reserved for scholarships for students entering higher education institutions outside their home countries.

Therefore, by attending any one of QS Asia events, universities serve two purposes they boost their university’s internationalisation and they help many students around the world make their dreams of having higher education degrees come true.
