The Burmese pro-democracy leader receives an honorary doctorate in civil law from Oxford University nearly 20 years after it was awarded.
Aung San Suu Kyi was "hailed with joy" by her former university today, as she returned to Oxford to receive an honorary doctorate.
The Burmese opposition leader was praised for her "patience and endurance" during her 24 years under house arrest in her homeland, in a ceremony at the prestigious institution.
Ms Suu Kyi was awarded an advanced degree in civil law during Oxford's annual Encaenia ceremony in the Sheldonian Theatre.
It is the first time the pro-democracy leader has visited Oxford for decades.
Presenting the award, Oxford's Public Orator, Professor Richard Jenkyns of Lady Margaret Hall, said that while her return to Oxford is a public event, it is not forgotten that Ms Suu Kyi is also returning to her old home and "a city full of memories".
