A Lincoln student will be jetting off to Moscow this summer to spend time working with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).


Sarah Sleaford (20), who studies Psychology and Criminology at the University of Lincoln, has been accepted onto one of the few work placements offered by the FCO.


She will work in the diplomatic service on the Overseas Undergraduate Attachment Scheme for five weeks during the summer break.


While there she will be dealing with UK citizens who may have experienced crime-related problems.  She will also have the opportunity to view different policy and law and order practices.


And the trip will give Sarah, who studied Russian A-level, the chance to experience the language first hand.


“This is a fantastic opportunity,” said Sarah.  “It is a chance to find out exactly what I want to do when I finish university. 

“I would love to travel the world and learn different languages and working for the FCO means that you get to travel a lot. 

“Hopefully the work placement will reaffirm what I want to do.”

Sarah will be visiting London on 18th June to be briefed on the work placement and will leave for the Russian capital in July.
