Media partnerships – Special Reports

University World News has considerable experience covering large international higher education conferences. Specialised higher education journalists are available to cover an event of equal importance to your organisation and UWN readers and to write a Special Report to be published on the UWN website and in its e-newspaper on your behalf.

With University World News as a media partner, your organisation is assured of high quality analysis, news coverage and feature articles – all with a global perspective and from a news organisation that is widely respected and has an independent voice.

In 2009, University World News was selected to be the official media partner to the UNESCO World Conference on Higher Education, in 2010 it was the media partner for the OECD’s International Management in Higher Education (IMHE) general conference in Paris, and in 2011 it was media partner to the Talloires Network conference in Madrid.
