Former Officers & Honorary Degree Holders of the University

  • Doctors of the University (honoris causa)

    Doctor of the University is an honorary degree conferred on the recipient for their contribution as a result of their studies, research, academic or community pursuits and accomplishments.

    From 2004, the term honoris causa was applied to recipients whose achievements were outside of the University, but omitted for those whose contribution was made for the University.

    In 2013 a change in the Special Degrees Rules allowed a nominated person who has rendered exceptionally distinguished service to the University or to society and is not a serving member of the staff of the University to be admitted to the Degree of Doctor of the University (honoris causa) - DUniv (hc).
