Islamabad: Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari's son Bilawal has been awarded a BA Honours degree at a convocation of the Oxford University.

The degree was awarded to Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, chairman of the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party, at the convocation held on Saturday, the PPP said in a statement on Sunday.

He was accompanied to the event by his aunt Sanam Bhutto and sister Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari.

Bilawal graduated with B A Honours in modern history and politics.

Though he had completed the course two years ago, he was unable to formally receive the degree until now due to his busy schedule, the statement said.

The son of slain former premier Benazir Bhutto will turn 24 in September.

He can contest parliamentary elections only in 2013.
