Applying to similar yet different courses?Watch
> I wish to learn about Middle Eastern culture, history, and politics (and have done quite a bit in terms of political history). Plus, I've talked about Arabic being useful for future career paths.
> I've talked about my interest in US foreign policy and the US's place in the world for international relations, plus more about the Middle East and Russia, and how our relationship with the US affects what we see in the media.
> And I've talked about my interest in British politics & the UK's social issues etc and our place in terms of international relations, like with the EU and all that jazz.
Unfortunately, however, I'm finding it really hard to not name the courses, like I can't say: "I would like to study Arabic because..." or "The relationships between countries interest me because..." because I feel that it's so blatant that I'm applying to different courses. ('Politics' should be okay because both all of them include politics so advantage lol)
Does anyone have any advice or thoughts about this?
+ If I don't include the course name would that seem too ambiguous?
+ Should I just choose between the two courses to make life easier?
You don't actually have to mention your course title in your personal statement. Avoiding it is fine and universities understand that you'll be applying for slightly different courses elsewhere
