A centenarian finally gets his masters degree

A 102-year-old pensioner has finally gotten his masters degree.

Brian Lowe should have obtained his MA two years after he graduated from Trinity College at Cambridge university 85 years ago, but never applied for it.

The pensioner - who read law and now lives in Australia - wanted to "complete his CV".

A Trinity College spokeswoman "We were delighted to hear from Mr Lowe and were happy to arrange to have his certificate sent out to him. We've checked the university registry for anyone older, and we think he's the oldest student to ever have their degree conferred."
