Jacob Tettey Diameh, a Regent alumnus has received the 2020 Swanny Intercultural Impact Award.
The award recognizes people who have made an impact in the lives of students from different backgrounds and have helped shape their academic experience.
Jacob, who graduated from Regent University College of Science and Technology in 2018, was among the recipients who were recognized in May 2020 for going above and beyond and actively seeking to make a difference.
The award is organized by the Students’ Union of the University of Lincoln, Lincoln, UK, and are considered one of the most prestigious student awards at the University.
Awardees are determined after students nominate their peers in a series of categories. Following a shortlisting and judging process, winners are selected.
After completing a BSc. degree programme in Management with Computing from Regent and graduating with first-class honours, Jacob proceeded to an MSc. degree in International Business at the University of Lincoln.
”As a fresh postgraduate student studying in the UK, I was new to British culture and the UK educational system. Leaving Ghana to live and study in a new country really took me out of my comfort zone,” Jacob shared.
