University staff are invited to suggest distinguished individuals for consideration as Honorary Fellows by the Fellows Committee.

Cardiff University Fellowships are usually awarded to individuals who fulfil one or more of the following criteria:

  • have achieved academic excellence and a national or international leadership role in an academic discipline offered at Cardiff
  • have made a substantial contribution to social change on a national or international level
  • have made a substantial cultural contribution on a national or international level
  • have raised the international profile of Cardiff and Wales in their particular field.

In addition, the Fellows Committee will take into account the personal connection(s) of the nominated individuals to Cardiff and Wales, and the likely future contribution that the individual might make to the University as a result of the association.

Upcoming nominations

The next nomination round will open in August 2015. 

In the meantime if you have any queries please contact Development and Alumni Relations,
