Honorary & Visiting Titles Committee

Lorraine Kelly, Honorary Doctor of Arts, with Pauline Miller-Judd, Dean of Arts and Creative Industries

Edinburgh Napier University confers Honorary Awards on persons of distinction who, through their work or other commitments, embody the values of Edinburgh Napier University and reflect, in the excellence of what they do, the nature of the University.


The decision to confer an award and the precise title of the degree currently rests with the University Court on recommendations from the University's Honorary and Visiting Titles Committee and the Academic Board.

A list of previous Honorary Graduates is available here.


The Honorary and Visiting Titles Committee is currently on hiatus, as it is under review.  We will make the new details available in due course.

The regulations and procedures for the award of honorary degrees and conferment of emeritus and visiting titles are available here​.
