Each year, Royal Holloway awards Honorary Fellowships to individuals who have achieved eminence in their area or made an outstanding contribution to the life and work of the College or to the cause of education. During our Winter Graduation Ceremonies, many history students were present as the first of these 2017/18 Honorary Fellowships was conferred on Professor Justin Champion, in recognition of his contribution to history in the United Kingdom and the College.

Further Honorary Fellowships will be awarded at this year’s annual Honorary Fellows Ceremony, to be held on Thursday 17 May
