A key figure in the development of the first BSc and MSc degrees in radiography in the country will be receiving an honorary fellowship from the University of Suffolk this autumn.

Christine Dobson was educated at Ipswich High School for Girls and she became the Principal of the East Anglian College of Radiography.

She became the Director of Academic Development at the then University Campus Suffolk, with a strong focus on quality and the student experience.

During her career she has held many national committee memberships and chairs, published and presented papers and externally examined in the UK and overseas. She was invited to 10 Downing Street in relation to her work on Foundation degrees.

Christine retired in 2014 but her passion for education has not diminished and she is currently chairing the University of the Third Age in East Suffolk.

She said: “I am truly delighted to receive an Honorary Fellowship of the University of Suffolk. Having been involved in the team to develop the University it is with the greatest pleasure and pride that I can witness the incredible development of the University as it goes from strength to strength and I wish it every success in the future.”
