Following the tradition of the first Congress in 1908, IFHE World Congresses are held every four years and offer an exciting opportunity to discuss current global issues through research, best practice and and emerging trends. 

World Congresses have been held in all continents and attract approximately 1,000 professionals and students from around the globe. They are successfully organised by IFHE members from the host country on a voluntary basis. Click here for an overview on all World Congresses since 1908.
