Professor Kenneth Pickering, an Honorary Professor in the School of Arts’ Drama Department is being awarded a Doctor of Letters from the University of West London (London College of Music) later this year.
The award is to celebrate Professor Pickering’s recognition as a role model for University’s students through his professional profile and experience.
In the early 1960s Professor Pickering gained the Associate Diploma in Speech (ALCM) when the London College of Music was a free-standing college. When it became part of the University of West London, Pickering supported the development of the degree in Musical Theatre and acted as External Examiner to a variety of their courses.
Professor Kenneth Pickering is still a proud member of the University of Kent as a Honorary Professor and regularly runs sessions here on campus in Canterbury.
