Basically, I will be sending my ucas off at the end of the week due to the fact my course and universities require it sent off early, however I have a problem with the 5th university choice.
For the first 4 choices I will be studying Law as it is the course I have always wanted to do, although I have indeed always had an underlying interest in politics, which is evident in my personal statement.
I am torn.
My options are:
Law & Politics at Cardiff/Kent (canterbury)
or a seperate politics degree.
However I am unsure whether the university I opt to do a politics degree with would be won over by my personal statement. The personal statement is tailored for someone who wishes to study law, but has a strong interest in politics.
Seeing as I have mentioned my interest in politics 2-3 times in the personal statement, would that be sufficient mention of it for a university admissions officer to accept me?
Should I play it safe and apply for cardiff or canterbury, or should i risk it and apply for a politics degree, thus giving me the option to do politics over law.
Long winded and confusing, but if you understand what my situation is, could you please offer me some advice or your opinion.
Thank you very much
