Chow Yun Fat is set to receive another honorary doctorate, this time from the Hong Kong Baptist University.
As reported on HK01, the news was announced on 3 August, with the university revealing that they will bestow Chow the Honorary Doctor of Humanities on 7 August, in recognition of his professional achievements and contributions to global films.
This is the third time that Chow is being awarded by a tertiary academic institution.
The actor was given an honorary doctorate by the City University of Hong Kong back in 2001, while the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts named him Honorary Fellow in 1999.
In addition to the new title, Chow will also be joining famed director Felix Chong to participate in a Q&A session with teachers, students, and alumni of the university’s School of Communication to share his experience in the film industry.
