Singing sensation Susan Boyle has been awarded an honorary doctorate from a Scottish university.

Boyle, who shot to fame on Britain's Got Talent, accepted the degree yesterday from Edinburgh's Queen Margaret University in recognition of her "contribution to the creative industries."

The singer once studied for a higher education certificate at the university.

A 40-something church volunteer from a small Scottish village, Boyle became a global sensation in 2009 after she performed the song "I Dreamed a Dream" on "Britain's Got Talent."

She has since sold 18 million records around the world and performed for audiences from the U.S. to China.
