Postumous degree

My friend from teacher training days died during the summer after a 10 year battle with cancer. She had borne this bravely, always coming back to work after each bout of chemo or radiation or whatever experimental procedure they wanted to try next.
On top of this, apart from her family life which was her priority, she did a post graduate qualification at a Scottish university. They were very understanding when she was ill and although she nearly completed it she was laterly too ill to finish the last module in writing.
I was overcome with joy today to hear that the university has decided to award the qualification postumously based on the quality of work she had already undertaken and the plans she had discussed with her tutor. Her family have been invited to the ceremony. Isn't that wonderful?

Yes. :)

I know of other times this has been done, or something similar - and yes, I think it's a good thing.

A good decision and one I'm sure her family will appreciate.
