An honorary degree is one of higher education's most significant accolades.
Each year, following very careful consideration, the University bestows a number of honorary degrees on distinguished individuals who merit special recognition for outstanding achievement and distinction in a field or activity consonant with the mission of the University.
The people concerned receive their degrees at one of the two degree congregations held in February and July of each year in the Great Hall of the Wills Memorial Building.
During the ceremony an oration is delivered in commendation of each honorary graduand.
