    Hi there I'm an international student trying to get an offer from a Scottish University.

    Recently i've started gathering informations about UCAS procedure.
    My course of interest is International Relations BUT... i couldn't find any "single subject degree" in International Relations ( at least in the universities where i could have a chance to be accepted )

    So.. i find myself compelled to fill the five slots this way :

    1- International Relations and Politics
    2- History and International Relations ( same university )

    3- international politics and languages

    4- politics and psychology

    5- anthropology and international relations

    Now, that said... let's talk about my PS.. i'm in deep waters.

    will my heterogenous choices penalize me?
    how am i going to write a coherent PS?

    I need help!

    I'm applying from America to Scottish universities, for almost the exact same courses as you! Mine was mainly international relations and politics - for me they were pretty simple to tie together, and I backed up my reasoning for applying with lots of academic experience in my personal statement, especially with AP courses. Since all of your choices are similar, I think you should be fine!!

    I hope I helped somewhat!

    There's two for you And it is a common subject to combine with politics - use the UCAS course search to find other courses that will be more similar
