Congratulations Tom!

Tom Patey (OH 2008-18) gained a First Class Degree in Journalism
OH, Tom Patey
OH, Tom Patey

We recently heard from Tom regarding his success at University of Leeds.

I am delighted to say I have graduated from BA Journalism with a First Class degree, including a 75 in my dissertation, comparing the contrasting coverage of white and BAME footballers by the media and I am indebted to the journalists who helped me with my final piece!

Three years at the University of Leeds come to an end but I am relieved to say I have another year left as I prepare to enrol on MA Corporate Communications, Public Relations & Marketing in the Business School at University Of London.

My studies will continue alongside the frequent work for Stats Perform, who I am extremely grateful to for freelance opportunities in a highly-competitive sports media world.

Well done Tom and good luck in your next stage of education!
