Double delight as twins graduate with identical degrees at Hallam

21st November 2016

Twin brothers James and Daniel Wormley are celebrating after achieving identical first-class honours degrees from Sheffield Hallam.

The 22-year-olds from Swinton, near Doncaster, both graduated with top marks after studying Accounting and Finance at the University's Business School. The pair chose to study the same subject as they both enjoyed and excelled in maths at school. Daniel said: "We have always done a lot together and had the same group of friends growing up. "We're both good with numbers and people are always going to need accountants so we chose to study the same degree subject. "We chose Hallam as we knew Sheffield and thought it was a great city and the University is right in the centre. "The course was hard and there were some tricky modules so we're both really pleased to have got firsts. "I've had an amazing time at Hallam and I'm kind of disappointed it's over but you can't be a student forever. "Graduation was a great day. It was a bit odd bumping into the Dean in the pub after but he was nice and congratulated us both." The brothers graduated with fellow students from Sheffield Business School at a ceremony at Sheffield City Hall this week. They are now both keen to start careers in the finance industry. Professor Kevin Kerrigan, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Sheffield Business School, added: "James and Daniel epitomise the kind of student we nurture at Sheffield Business School. They have the knowledge and skills to succeed at the highest level and I am sure they will thrive. "A double first is an astonishing thing. Their family was rightly proud of their achievements."
