Higher education continues to be a route to honours, with four serving vice-chancellors recognised in the Queen’s 2019 birthday honours including a knighthood for Nigel Carrington, head of the University of the Arts London.

Carrington’s honour is in recognition of his “pivotal role in higher education and the rise of the UK creative industries since 2008”, the government said on 7 June. This has involved him “transforming UAL from a disparate set of well-known colleges into Europe’s leading and largest creative university”.

His leadership as chairman of Advance HE and founding director of the Creative Industries Federation, as well as his extensive charitable activities were also mentioned.
