Congratulations, Dr. Sheeran! 

Ed Sheeran was granted an honorary doctorate from University Campus Suffolk (UCS) for his "outstanding contribution to music." Upon receiving the award Ed commented, "I've had an amazing year... and this makes it even better." Sheeran also thanked his home of Suffolk saying, "Suffolk is very much where I call home. Receiving this recognition is a real privilege."

Sheeran left school in Suffolk at the age of 16 to concentrate on his music and, as he told the graduation attendees, "I didn't really listen to anyone who told me that I couldn't do something." And boy has he proven his naysayers wrong. Sheeran's albums + and x have both been worldwide successes earning multi-platinum certifications and garnering Ed more than 40 awards and over 120 award nominations! Sheeran also continues to set streaming records on Spotify!
