Honorary awards are conferred on an annual basis during the University’s award ceremony weeks in July and November. They are intended to reward individuals who have attained national and international success and recognition in their chosen field, to maximise the University’s public presence, to allow its Schools to develop closer relationships with distinguished persons and to engage students in the process by inviting recipients of Honorary Awards to maintain their links with the University by giving master classes and public lectures.
The honorary awards available are Doctor of the University (Hon DUniv), Fellow of the University (Hon UHFellow), Emeritus/Emerita Vice-Chancellor, Emeritus/Emerita Professor and Emeritus/Emerita Dean.
