He was invited by the Polish Society and the Diplomatic Hub, both run by students.

“The ambassador was very thankful for the invitation and the ability to come back to Exeter and speak to the student community.”

Mr Rzegocki visited the university as an academic in 2015 and spoke about the history of Polish independence and international relations. 

After the talk last week, Mr Rzegocki answered questions from the audience.
