Namesakes born a day apart graduate from ARU - in English Literature

Two students linked by extraordinary coincidences graduated from Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) this week, and both will hope to hit the Wuthering Heights in their respective future careers

For both students have the name Bronte Taylor, were born just one day apart and graduated from the same English Literature course at ARU.

The grandfather of one of the 22-year-old graduates was a huge fan of the writings of the Bronte sisters and this was a factor in her name. But the origins of the name given to the younger of the two Brontes, who lives near March in Cambridgeshire, was nothing to do with the famous literary sisters:

The very slightly older Bronte said: Despite so many similarities, both graduates have different ideas about how to use their degree. The older Bronte, from Stowmarket in Suffolk, has embarked on Masters degree in Marketing at ARU with hopes to go into social media within the fashion industry, while her classmate is already working for a publishing company and has ambitions to travel as much as possible.
