Government and Politics, the United Nations and Law Work Experience watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am a 16 year old 6th form student studying the IB.

    At this point in time I am not yet sure what I would like to study at university, however based on my interests, it will most likely revolve around Government and Politics, History or Law.

    Does any one know of any form of work experiences programmes or trips there are for these sort of paths? Such as a work shadowing based activity in parliament, trips to UN conferences foreign office work experience or Law activities?

    I think this would be good for University applications, I am looking to get around 38+ in the IB, therefore I would like to stand out, as well as go to a pretty good University...

    (I study at an IB school in Cambridge, just in case this helps anyone when advising locations for work experience etc.)

    (I had to pick A level as I couldn't see an IB option or anything along the lines of "experience")
