Nominate someone for an Honorary Degree by 20 February 2023!

Help us choose our next Honorary Graduates by nominating someone by 20 February 2023!

Honorary Degrees recognise the exceptional contributions made by individuals and is one of Higher Education’s most significant accolades. We particularly welcome nominations that reflect our key values and demonstrate our commitment to knowledge.

All staff and students can submit a nomination for Honorary Doctorates. When nominating someone, it’s important to think about the relation they have to the University. Maybe they are from Kent, have achieved academic distinction or have been an inspirational figure who has made an exceptional contribution to society.

To see the full criteria, take a look at the Honorary Degree Kent Community page.

Over the years, we have had a range of incredible Honorary Graduates. Just in 2022, we had Afrobeats star Tiwa Savage, Britain’s fastest woman Dina Asher-Smith and Nobel Laureate for Literature and Kent emeritus professor Abdulrazak Gurnah just to name a few.
