Twins who studied at the University of Lincoln will be graduating together next week at an awards ceremony at Hull City Hall.


Gino and Nerina Tommasi (20), a brother and sister from Scunthorpe, will each be awarded their HND in Business Studies on Wednesday next week having completed their studies in October last year.


The business course taught at North Lindsey College in Scunthorpe was split into five distinct modules which incorporated elements of law, economics, accountancy, marketing and human resources.


“The course was great, as was the extra support of studying with my brother,” said Nerina. “If I were to miss a lesson for any reason, it was good to have someone to help me with the work I missed and vice versa.”


The university is equally pleased with Gino and Nerina’s achievements. “We are very pleased with the twins’ results and wish them every success in their chosen careers,” said a university spokesperson.


Gino has since decided to continue his interest in accountancy while Nerina aims to continue her law studies.


Gino and Nerina will attend the University of Lincoln’s postgraduate awards ceremony at 2.30pm on Friday 28th January 2005.
