American Studies/History Work Experience? Watch
I'm looking to start doing some work experience as my school didn't provide any help at all. At university I'd like to do American Studies or American History, what kind of work experience would be good to get me in to these kind of courses? Or does it not really matter what kind as long as I have some?
What you do need is a strong PS (I want to study this subject because ....) plus evidence that you are thinking outside the A level syllabus. Going to relevant exhibitions/museums/art galleries, public lectures at your local Uni, reading relevant academic text books etc.
