I graduated with a degree in International Relations. So basically it was a mix of international politics, peace and conflict resolution, counter-terrorism, security, languages, and Europe specialization. Now, I'm just not sure what career to pursue with my degree. Maybe law? If anyone has a suggestion please let me know!

Your degree actually sets you up to do very many things. However, wtf did you not plan your career while you were at University and had a careers centre on your doorstep? Your University pumps millions of pounds per year into the careers centre and their entire focus is on getting graduating students into jobs or further degrees. You need to contact them and use their specialist skills, advice, websites, data etc

Your degree sounds pretty fun, something I would have enjoyed studying. You could try looking for jobs in the Civil Service (Check their website). A friend of mine did your degree and is now working for HMRC.

I converted to law. Not many did so far as I know.

The idea that the degree is limited is daft and naive. I don't know a single course mate who isn't doing an interesting or graduate job of some kind.

I studied the same but my degree had a bigger focus on law, languages and economics, not so much on counter-terrorism and so forth.
While studying I decided that IR is definitely not for me: all the formality, diplomatics, back stabbing and lack of opportunities in my country made me decide to think about my competences and I got a job in HR, moved to another country, and I'll be pursuing a master's in this field.
Most of my coleagues went on to study international economics and similar; law can also be a good route, but most of all you need to think about what YOU would see yourself doing in the future, not what makes sense for you to work in just because you have a degree in IR. Hope this helped!

Join the club I just finished my degree and I really don't want to be a lawyer and pay stupid amount for the diploma when I'm not even sure that's what I want to do. So now I'm looking into working at unis but I want to stay in Scotland which slightly limits me. Also none of the grad schemes are open yet so I'm just kinda floating.
