An Introduction by James Reynolds.

As part of Orbital's collaboration with the FCO, we are thrilled to introduce you to James Reynolds. James will be working with us to help educate students about remaining safe when travelling abroad.

I’m James Reynolds & I’m a law student here at Royal Holloway, University of London. Whilst I originally hail from London, I reside in the Cotswolds outside of term-time. I have also had the privilege of living abroad for several years in the Netherlands and Poland. 

As of September 2019, I have been elected as one of a handful of students across the country to represent the interests of approximately 2.5 million university students should they travel abroad. As representative of the United Kingdom’s Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO), it is my responsibility to ensure that University of London students know where to find the latest up to date travel information & feel free to approach me or the #TravelAware campaign if they have any questions about travel requirements, local laws & customs & travelling safely.

We’re excited to be collaborating with Orbital Magazine this year to reach as many of you as possible. So please have a read of my articles & social media posts to learn about foreign cultures and the best tips to remain safe when travelling abroad!
