    For Sociology you could probably just read books and talk about them in your PS. For example there is a book called 'The Sociological Imagination' (by someone called Mills I think) that is in most university reading lists. If you could read that and talk about it they'd probably like it. It's not a vocational subject so work experience isn't really required.

    I'm hopefully doing joint hons Sociology at university in September - best of luck! 😊

    Thank you so much! I knew it would be a good idea to do some wider reading but I hadn't got round to looking yet. Thank you!
