    Hi, has anybody studied Arabic at westminster?

    I have my heart set on studying Arabic (I have always loved the middle east and have a genuine interest in the area/culture/politics/history) and would love to study in London but as my grades are low (BCC, the same as the entry requirements stated on the website) Westminster is the only Arabic course in the UK I have a hope of getting a place on. There are four variations on the Arabic course: Arabic and international relations, Arabic and linguistics, Arabic and english lit and Arabic and english lang. Would it be ok to use all four of these courses of 4 of 5 my uni applications (sorry for the terrible wording of this post, i'm tired!)?

    I've read a lot about the Middle East, have a deep interest in women's rights and human rights issues, and politics. On my personal statement I plan to mention the books I have read about the middle east, my deep interest in the area and some of the things i've done (such as joining the Palestinain solidarity campaign and this summer I will be attending the Shubbak-Arab culture- festival in London).

    For my a-levels i'm currently studying Law, History, Politics and English lit (english lit is not going well due to teachers and missing lessons due to counselling appointments, will drop it at the end of this year). Do I have a chance of getting on the course?
