The student forum for international affairs at the University of Exeter.

About Us

Founded in 2015, the Diplomatic Hub is a student-led project that provides an interdisciplinary forum for those interested in global politics and diplomacy. Throughout the academic year we organize events with academics, diplomats, and other professionals working in the field of international affairs. We have also run crisis simulation workshops and field trips. Through these events we hope to engage students beyond their academic programme, provide valuable career advice, and shine a light on the complex world of diplomacy. We are self-funded and welcome any support to continue the project.
