    Which out of the following universities would you say is the best, in general, for studying political science:

    St Andrews

    I've looked at the subject ranking on the leagues table but I got confused as there are so many league tables with differing results!

    Personally, I think it's best to look at some of the modules the university offers.

    Some things you might want to keep in mind are:

    1. Do the modules look interesting?
    2. Do you like the assessment methods? (compulsory dissertation? Too many exams?)
    3. If you don't know what'd be interesting, you have time to do more reading to figure something out.
    4. Ask students from some universities on TSR what they thought of the course.

    It requires a bit more effort than looking at a league table but it should give you a more informed decision.
