Honorary degrees were awarded to three esteemed figures, each of whom was recognised for the contribution they have made to the work of the University and the fabric of the city.
Former graduate, Ken Martin (below), received an honorary degree for the leading role he’s played in the city of as an architect, educator and gallery owner.
