Fellowship ceremony

Our in-person Fellowship ceremonies, which started to be held at the College’s London office in 2018 and before that were held at Congress, are special occasions for those who have been elected as Fellows of the College to celebrate their exceptional achievement.

We last held an in-person Fellowship ceremony in June 2019, with the pandemic forcing us to cancel several planned ceremonies last year and this year.

So, we were delighted to be able to hold two online ceremonies in June, and all virtual attendees will also be invited to face-to-face events when we recommence the physical sessions.

The 185 who were honoured during the virtual ceremonies were elected as Fellows of the College in 2019 and 2020.

At the events, members were welcomed with speeches from Chief Executive Paul Rees and in his stead Director of Strategic Communications Kim Catcheside as well as from Dean Dr Kate Lovett, President Dr Adrian James, Registrar Dr Trudi Seneviratne and Treasurer Dr Jan Falkowski.

These were the final Fellowship ceremonies to be held during the tenure of Dr Lovett as Dean and Dr Falkowski as Treasurer, who both finished their roles at our AGM this month – having been replaced by Professor Subodh Dave and Professor John Crichton respectively.

The ceremonies were watched live by a total of 307 attendees from across the world. Attendees joined from 24 different countries outside the UK.

If you are interested in becoming a Fellow of the College, we are accepting nominations until 15 September.
