At Lancaster University, graduation week officially began today. This is a happy occasion for our students, faculty, and staff as we come together to celebrate success.
Over the next few days, more than 3,000 degrees will be awarded either in person or virtually.
Four deserving people will receive honorary degrees, which are presented to those who have distinguished themselves internationally in their area and to those who have rendered particularly valuable service to the university or its territories.
Additionally, alumni awards will be handed to four previous Lancaster students. These honour Lancaster graduates who have made a significant contribution to their subject and have distinguished themselves among their colleagues on a national or international level.
