The British Embassy Rome, the British Embassy to the Holy See and the British Consulate-General Milan, as part of the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), promote internship opportunities as a means of encouraging talented undergraduates to get a taste of FCDO/Embassy work.

Local internships will be considered openly with a variety of local universities, ensuring the widest possible pool of candidates, and appointments will be made on merit. The internship will not in any way substitute a work contract nor will it guarantee future employment with the Embassy/British Consulate-General.

Any UK-based students seeking work experience should refer to the working for FCDO page on the FCDO website.

The British Embassy Rome and the British Consulate-General Milan would welcome expressions of interest from universities or other appropriate bodies interested in facilitating internships with us. For further information read the following full guidance note on internships.
