Introduction

Honorary Degrees: The University’s Premier Tribute

Honorary degrees are awarded to individuals in recognition of their distinguished service and commitment to the University, the Hong Kong community, and to academia. They are also conferred to those who have made valuable intellectual, social and cultural contributions to society and the world.

The University’s honorary degree is the highest accolade it can bestow on an individual, and is also one of its oldest and most cherished traditions.
