    Both courses interest me but I'm struggling to see the difference between them. Is one more competitive than the other? Is one more respectable than the other? Also, I hope to get into politics, so which one would apply best? I'm really stuck between the two :confused:

    Check the course pages for applicants vs first year students to work out which one's more competitive. They'll both be equally well-respected, and you can get into politics with either degree. (I'm guessing you're thinking of think tanks or something, right? Because of course you can become a politicians with any kind of background.)

    Best to look at the pages for the modules and imagine which ones you'd rather spend a large amount of your time on. That said, I think you get two outside options for Government in your first year, so you could basically do Politics and Philosophy by choosing two outside options in the philosophy department. There's also the option of switching course once you're here, so don't worry too much about it.
