The Oscar winner opened the school's research and training unit named after writer Iris Murdoch, who she played in Iris, in 2003 and she returned a decade later to pick up a doctorate.

Accepting her latest honour, Dench told students and university staff, "When I formally opened the Iris Murdoch Building over a decade ago, I was delighted to see a public building which could provide an exemplar for dementia-friendly design. Coming back to the university, it is so encouraging to see the myriad of ways the Dementia Services Development Centre and its staff have informed practice and made a positive difference to people's lives.
