Come and listen to firsthand accounts of life in the The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and talk to some of our officials to find out more about life as a diplomat.

The FCO will be visiting University of Westminster on Thursday 17 October at our Marylebone Campus. This could be 2 hours that change your life. 

Date: Thursday 17 October 2013
Time: 1pm
Venue: Room MG14, Marylebone Campus

Diplomats from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office will visit 28 universities across England, Scotland, and Wales in the next two weeks in a campaign to recruit the best and brightest to apply to the diplomatic service’s Graduate Fast Stream program.

More than 50 diplomats of diverse backgrounds and work experiences will visit the University and explain what life is like in the diplomatic service. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions and hear about a range of career paths and experiences from the speakers, who vary from junior officers to ambassadors.
