Fab four don their robes as quadruplets graduate from University of Warwick

Quadruplets graduateA set of quadruplets is looking FOURward to sparkling careers ahead after all simultaneously graduating with Masters degrees from the University of Warwick.

The 23-year-old quads, two identical twin brothers and two identical twin sisters, collected their degrees at a ceremony at Warwick Arts Centre and are now set for top jobs in the worlds of banking and professional services in London.

Identical sisters Toks and Temi Ogunsanya – who were leading lights in the University’s Lacrosse Club - are the oldest of the four by a matter of minutes.

Toks graduated from the University of Warwick with an MEng in Manufacturing and Engineering and is now due to start work in the world of banking in London.

Temi gained an MSc in Management from Warwick Business School, which led to a summer internship at a major bank in London, where she is now working.

Their brothers Tobi and Tolu Ogunsanya also received an MSc in Management from Warwick Business School.

Tolu, the youngest of the four, has a job lined up at one of the big four accountancy firms while Tobi is mulling over two job offers to work at City firms.

Although they studied in different faculties, the University of Warwick arranged for them to all graduate at the same ceremony.

Tobi said the foursome, originally from Lagos in Nigeria, were not above a bit of sibling rivalry when it comes to their academic prowess.

“The fact we all chose to study at the University of Warwick was a natural decision as we are a close-knit family and we were all attracted by the strength of the courses on offer,” he said.

“But of course as with any family, there can be a bit of competition between us when it comes to our studies.

“We like to think of it as a healthy rivalry – and we all supported each other through the course.

“And now we’ve all graduated together, it means that our mum is four times as proud of us.”
