London, June 20 : British author, actor and director Terry Jones of comedy group Monty Python will be awarded an honorary degree by the University of Glasgow Friday.

The veteran star will receive a Doctorate of Letters for his contribution towards film and television and for his academic research around medieval history and literature.

He is "proud" to receive the honour.

"I am proud to be awarded the title of Doctor of Letters from the University of Glasgow and would like to offer my thanks for the consideration," Jones said in a statement.

A ceremony will be held at the University Friday morning.
