    ahh cool ! Being a diplomat sounds awesome, I would love to be a foreign correspondent for a Newspaper somewhere like France or Germany.
    Are you going to apply for the graduate stream ? any where in particular you want to be posted ?
    I will try the Civil Service fast stream, although the competition is really tight here. Long way until graduation as well.
    I'm struggling now to get a governmental internship back home in Romania. Either for the Ministry of External Affairs, Culture, Education or a position in the National Cultural Patrimony, but the competition is tight there as well

    How small is it? £45,000 is pretty tiny on the housing market.

    Just rent it out, or turn it into small apartments, a hotel, just don't sell it as it is always increasing in value.

    When you're older, 50+ then sell it for millions due to housing boom/inflation.

    It is not a massive house. 3 bedrooms and a small garden. Its proximity to good schools and a tube stations is why its so expensive (apparently)

    Yes they lived in it for 10+ years.

    I have no idea of the tax side of things, hired an IFA to deal with that

    all you need is 2:1 then you can get onto any graduate scheme in the country.

    Then once you get a job, be amazing and you will get promoted.

    Its really easy, you just have to sacrifice your social life to get to the top. That way your grandkids can have a easy life when they get your house when you die

    Just rent it out to a young professional. It'll probably fetch over £1000+ month in rent.
