Students in FPA have access to educational opportunities in Ottawa that aren’t available to students outside the National Capital Region. Some of these opportunities include guest speakers from embassies, political parties, lobbyists and media, the opportunity to interview politicians and diplomats, to intern with NGOs and social welfare organizations in the Ottawa area, and to do field placements at places such as RCMP Headquarters and Correctional Service Canada. They may also gain placements and internships at Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada and the US Embassy.
