A PAIR Oxford University alumnae were made honorary fellows of their old college after achieving success in their chosen fields.

Professor Amelia Fletcher OBE and the Hon Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth visited St Edmund Hall on Friday to be sworn in as honorary fellows.

Prof Fletcher, who studied philosophy, politics and economics, is now professor of competition policy at Norwich Business School and deputy director of the centre for competition policy at the University of East Anglia.

Judge Hollingworth, who completed the college's bachelor of civil law course, was the first Australian female lawyer to be awarded a Rhodes scholarship.

She was appointed as a judge of the Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, in 2004.
