University World News is an online publication that reports higher education news from a global perspective.
It is published as a free weekly emailed newsletter and website with original reports by correspondents from around the world, as well as global summaries of higher education news, analysis, and features published by reputable newspapers, magazines, and higher education organisations.
University World News comprises and is owned by a large network of senior education journalists from all regions of the world. It published its first issue in October 2007 and has drawn commendations for its objective and international approach from leading figures in the global higher education community. University World News journalists report on the whole spectrum of higher education from top world-ranking universities to institutions in more marginalised parts of the globe where universities are not strongly reported.
University World News also publishes a fortnightly Africa edition that is supported by the Ford Foundation.
It was sole media partner to the UNESCO World Conference on Higher Education in 2009 and a media partner to the OECD's Institutional Management in Higher Education conference in Paris in September 2010.
