Honorary Degree

Every year, the International University of Peace Switzerland confers 5 Honorary Degrees only to Personalities of high standing or Personalities who have made significant contributions in various fields of human knowledge such as sport, social and humanitarian commitment and who closely embody IUOP’s ideals.

International University of Peace degrees are honorary and lifelong. They are issued on the basis of the applicant’s skills and are conferred during one of the University’s many events.

A one-off donation is requested covering secretarial and formal Conferment Ceremony costs, which entitles the applicant to:

  • Degree Certificate
  • Customized gold plaque
  • Presidential Medal

Documentation for Honorary Degree application must be requested in writing to:  info@universumacademy.eu

We repeat once more that the Degrees are purely honorary and would like to make it clear that the proceeds deriving from the conferral of our honorary degrees, net of out-of-pocket and formal ceremony expenses, are used to fund our humanitarian activities in Italy and worldwide.
