Nominations for Honorary Graduates

Nominations for Honorary Graduates

The Honorary Degrees Committee invites nominations for the award of Honorary Degrees.


Any member of Court, Council, Academic Board and the alumni present at meetings of Convocation at which the request for nominations is tabled, may make a nomination.  The University should not be pressurised into approving nominations from outside bodies.

Where several members make a joint nomination, one should be shown as the nominator and the others as supporters.
