Founded in 2011, KCL Diplomacy Society is not only the premier foreign and international affairs society at King’s College London but also one of the largest student-led Diplomatic Society in London. We host high-profile speakers, embassy visits, networking and careers events focused on international relations, politics, economics, development, and more. Our goal is to connect students interested in foreign policy and affairs with people working in the field of diplomacy.
Our group of highly motivated students often organizes visits to foreign embassies in the heart of London to learn more about their culture, language and foreign affairs. We also receive high profile guests on campus at King's College such as the Hungarian ambassador with whom we discussed the place of Hungary in the European Union and their future relationship. Most of our events are formatted to include a part of Q&A with the speakers to ensure the greatest possible relevance and involvement to/from our members.
With over 400 members of the society from within and outside of King's College London it represents a great opportunity to present your organization or work to a wide range of young students and professionals interested in the sector.
Feel free to contact us if you are a young motivated individual and wish to get more involved in running the society or if you are interested in organizing an event with us in the future.
