Tom Collected the first ever TARGETjobs UK LGBTQ+ Undergraduate of the Year Award which was awarded to him at the ceremony hosted at Canary Wharf in London.

In addition to his studies, he has undertaken a vast amount outside of university where he has: founded Lancaster first sign language society, the disability lead for students with learning difficulties, and is the representative for LGBT students with disabilities.

When Tom obtained the award, he said: "To be announced the first ever, LGBTQ+ Undergraduate of the Year is such an overwhelmingly fantastic experience and one I will never forget. " He went on to thank the other shortlisted for the award as I know together we will continue to promote and advocate for inclusion."
