UCL Diplomacy Society is the largest international-based society at UCL. We pride ourselves on building a community of students passionate about the international field. Our aim is to inform our members about current political and economic affairs, providing a valuable opportunity to learn and engage in areas of foreign policy. The Society hosts exciting guest talks, roundtable events, visits to embassies and organisations and formal dinners with senior leaders. Through our network of diverse connections, we support students pursuing a career in foreign affairs and diplomacy.
The Diplomacy Society is a proud alliance society of the Bentham Brooks Institute, UCL's first student-led think tank formed by the 5 biggest international affairs at UCL. It encompasses a bespoke research program to produce peer-reviewed, high-quality research policy papers to influence policy-makers and influential figures.
Through our resources and contacts, Diplomacy Society provides endless opportunities and avenues for those wishing to pursue an international career.
We’ll be hosting interactive workshops and training sessions, alongside events with high-profile speakers, to develop an in-depth understanding about the diplomatic field.
Our diverse social events and networking opportunities are a fantastic way to meet the team and other Diplomacy Society members.
From becoming a society member, to working with the committee or writing for the society’s journal ‘The Diplomat’, there are so many ways to get involved.
UCL Diplomacy Society is proud to provide a space where students, who are passionate about diplomacy and international relations, can immerse themselves into this incredibly diverse field. We are committed to ensuring that students have the opportunity to engage with like-minded individuals and learn from those who are members of this community. Despite the ongoing pandemic, we have remained determined in making sure this society operates as usual! We will continue organising high-profile speaker events, roundtable discussions, networking events and interactive socials.
