    I chose a degree in European Politics over Politics because I thought Politics was just British Politics but now I know it's more global? But the University Website seems to sell European Politics much more, and the grades are a tad lower (not necessarily a good thing).
    What would be better? Can anyone offer some advice?

    No, no. A politics degree certainly isn't just British politics.

    I don't know much, but I'm guessing that a politics degree will offer things such as international (e.g American) politics whereas the European course won't do this

    the nottingham politics degree has very little british politics, s'why i love it! european politics means you have to study this annoying module (jean monnet)which has two 9am lectures, madness! hehe

    It depends. European politics is going to focus much more on Europe with probably very little room for outside study. Politics is much more global and has a much wider focus. Its all in what you prefer.

    looking on the notts website, the main difference I noticed was that you had to study two extra modules on the european union or something. Since for me, the EU sends me to sleep, there was no way I'd do that.

    The guy at the open day said that so long as you had the ABB for the normal politics, it was pretty easy to swtich between them.

    they evidently need to make up the numbers, read into that what you will.
