    Hello! A thread for anyone looking at politics at uni for 2016.
    If AS levels go well, I'm hoping to do Gov&Pol, Economics, and English Lit.
    What about anyone else? Where are people going for open days?

    ah cool, what grades are you hoping for?? I imagine those 3 are pretty high?
    I was looking at Sheffield, Leeds, Hull and then UEA and kent.
    I'm also hoping to go to a politics application event thing at UCL in July.

    wow! that's cool.
    I've not looked at Essex, but I've also heard it's good for politics!

    True, Durham and Bath want AAA but York and Exeter are AAB.

    I think AAA is a bit out of my reach! I'm looking more at ABB, but maybe AAB if things go well!

    I'm pretty much going to uni because I have no clue what else I want to do with my life! I'm thinking of maybe going into the civil service for a role within parliament, or maybe as a researcher for MPs, and I'd also considered looking into roles within a particular party.

    The plan is to do Politics with another subject (either IR, Economics or History) and then apply for training contracts and then do the GDL.

    If not I know popular routes for politics grads are research, marketing, finance, publishing and, of course, politics itself, all of which I could see myself pursuing.

    I plan to do PPE/Politics or maybe a joint Politics and History course, not too sure on the specifics yet. The dream Unis are Oxford, LSE, Warwick and UCL, but Essex looks like a good back up option. I want to somehow be involved in the political process, so joining the civil service after doing my degree sounds good but who knows.

    It would be nice to do a doctorate but I'll have to have a seriously well paid job before I can even think of that :/

    Hi I'm currently studying Politics and International Relations at Exeter Penryn Campus, the offers made here range from AAB to BBB so doesn't seem out of your reach. If you have any questions about the course, just ask

    I apply for Politics (and IR) for some Scottish universities. I'm an international student and currently studying for my 'A-levels.' Do you guys have any advice for the PS?

    Hello, thanks for starting this thread! I've only recently decided to do Politics so I'm still looking at unis! However these are the universities I am considering:
    - Aberystwyth ~ International Politics and Intelligence Studies
    - Swansea ~ Political Communication
    - Keele ~ Politics and International Relations
    - Cardiff ~ Politics and Sociology
    - QUB ~ Politics
    - Nottingham Trent ~ Politics and International Relations
    - Oxford Brookes ~ International Relations and Politics
    and others I know that the list is way more than 5 but I need to read through prospectuses or visit open days to narrow it down. It also depends on the grades I get cause if I get As then I might consider St. Andrews or Royal Holloway. Aberystwyth is my absolute fave though!
