Michael Maltby, CEO at Jurassic Fibre, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Exeter College’s Student Awards, as part of our ongoing relationship with the college.

“The college’s Esports Academy offers the chance to gain skills in one of the fastest growing industries in the world, and will play a key role in developing young adults with the skills to thrive in this new technological era.”

The winners were announced at the event which was held online on Thursday 10th February, and broadcast via the college’s YouTube channel. The 2022 winner was Daisy Batchelor who was delighted to win the Esports Academy Student of the Year Award at Exeter College’s Student Awards last night.
