Honorary Degrees

At certain Congregation ceremonies the University awards honorary degrees to candidates who have been nominated by University staff and approved by Senate. During the ceremony a speech (oration) of the life and work of the graduand is presented prior to conferring the award, the orations for recent honorary graduates are published for information. All members of staff are encouraged to submit nominations for the award of honorary degrees at future Congregations and for the new Chancellors Medals to former academic staff. 

The honorary degrees to be awarded during Summer Congregation 2014 will be announced nearer the time.
