An honorary degree is one of Higher Education's most significant accolades. Each year, the University grants honorary degrees to individuals of superior merit and in recognition of outstanding achievement in their field. These are awarded twice a year, at our Summer and Winter award ceremonies in July and December.

The Honorary Degrees Committee welcomes nominations from staff and students at the University and is putting a call out for nominations ahead of the next committee meeting. The deadline for nominations is Friday 14 February 2020.

Further guidance, including nomination criteria and how to make a nomination, can be found on the Honorary Degrees page.
