Honorary Awards

Honorary Fellowships and Honorary Doctorates are the most prestigious awards the University of Central Lancashire can bestow.

The recipients are distinguished individuals who have strong links to Lancashire or the North West region, are suitable role models who reflect the values of the University, or they have an existing, or potential, relationship with the University.
