I'm applying to read PPE at Oxford next year, so will need some content to show my interest.
What kinds of work experience could I do (other than shadowing an MP) to show that I'm interested in politics as a subject and would have the determination to study it at university level?
(I know there're probably countless other threads on this subject topic, but I'm new here).
Personal statement content help? (PPE application) Watch

In a PPE PS you'll have very little room for work experience type stuff - perhaps 2 or 3 sentences. I did 4 paragraphs - one on each of the 3 subjects and a 4th combining work experience and general EC stuff.
So yeah, I don't think it matters all that much. The interest you demonstrate in actual academia matters much more.
