John Sergeant Receives Honorary Doctorate

9th September 2013


Award winning journalist and political speaker, John Sergeant, has become an Honorary Doctorate of Letters at the University of Lincoln.

John received his degree during a special ceremony held at Lincoln Cathedral. His impressive career has so far involved a position as the Political Editor of ITN from 2000-2002 and he worked as the BBC’s Chief Political Correspondent from 1992-2000.

John was delighted to receive his degree, saying “I’m thrilled to bits. I'm flattered to receive this honorary doctorate especially as I come from such an academic family.” He also spoke about future opportunities for fellow graduates, stating "People say the golden age is over but I disagree. I would say the golden age is not over – it's at their feet."
