About

Our 2021 Diversity and Inclusion online event is open for registration! If you’re an undergraduate student looking for your next steps to excel in your post-graduate career, then this is the event for you.


At QS, our mission is to empower a billion future learners and support individuals from underrepresented groups to excel in higher education – the key to opening doors and developing the skills employers are looking for. This event will be particularly relevant to international expats and ambitious individuals of underrepresented groups pursuing higher education.

You’ll have the opportunity to join breakout rooms, networking lounges, workshops, panels and presentations featuring keynote speakers from some of the world’s largest companies. Our drop-in virtual event platform means you’re free to explore at our own pace and attend the discussions that are relevant to you.

Plus, hear from global leaders in MBA and business master’s education, including Georgetown University, Penn State University, University of Maryland, and many more. Event attendees can also apply for our exclusive QS World Merit Scholarships!

FAQs

Absolutely! Places are limited though, so make sure to register as soon as possible to secure your place.

We’ll email you a unique join link before the event which will open our virtual event platform at the start time. You’ll be able to navigate between the auditorium and breakout rooms to create your own, interactive event experience and attend the sections most relevant to you.

Some of the networking sessions in the virtual breakout rooms can involve a video component. It’s not vital to have your camera on but we do recommend it for a more interactive and engaging experience, and as a way to make more meaningful networking connections.

There’s no dress code, but if you’re joining the networking sessions that include a video component, we recommend business casual attire to help you make the best first impression.

To ensure the best and most seamless user experience, we recommend using your laptop or desktop. Make sure that you have a strong internet connection and check that your web camera and microphone are working properly. We also suggest arriving 10-15 minutes early.
