University medals for Exceptional Service

In 1987 the University introduced a new suite of medals: a bronze medal for long service by members of the general staff; a silver medal for exceptional service by a member of staff; a gold medal for exceptional service in an honorary capacity. In 1989 the conditions of award were amended to make both gold and silver medals available to members of staff and those serving in an honorary capacity alike; the silver for exceptional service in a particular capacity or field of activity, the gold for exceptional service to the University as a whole.
