Our honouries

Clicking this card will show a modal pop-up

Each year the University confers honorary awards as a way of recognising outstanding contributions to a specific field or to society in general, especially to those who have a close connection to our region or the academic areas in which we work. Our Honorary graduates are an integral part of our wider University community. We are proud to be associated with them and truly value their input and ongoing relationship with our University. Meet just a few of our distinguished honorary graduates here:

“Look beyond your limitations and plan your story. Learning is a communal experience – however clever we are as an individual, we are better as a group. We are so much brighter together, so enjoy sharing your learning with your colleagues and friends, and celebrate what you have achieved today.” John Peters

“I want to encourage you, in your struggles, every time you think you’re back down and can’t get out of it. Maybe you won’t get out of it, but maybe you will be changed in it. And in that place where you are changed, you can make a difference.” Carrie Grant

"Be hungry for it. Don’t be afraid to try new things and make mistakes – be different and don’t be afraid to be you!” Faye Tozer
