    Hello everyone!

    I thought it might have been a good idea to start this thread to gain some mutual support.
    It would be interesting to know why did you choose this course ? Did you select the dual defgree? Where are you from? In what subject are you going to specialise in ? Etc etc

    Hope to see you at the interview!

    Hiya, let's get this thread going!

    - I chose this course bc I love languages and politics - so it was the perfect match!
    - Nah I just chose straight UCL, applying to Sciences Po separately
    - I'm from London lol
    - Defo International relations and German, maybe Hebrew/Arabic/Mandarin/Russian

    Also thought it may be helpful to put grades/extra curriculars down:
    GCSE: A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*
    AS: AAAA
    A2 Predictions: A*A*A*

    Work experience at "magic circle" law firm in London, member of track cycling club, attended cyber-security conference at the University of Cambridge, run politics society, editor of school's political magazine, columnist for school's current affairs magazine, elected senior prefect at school, elected form representative for school council, international relations summer school at the University of London, summer exchange to Germany where I also attended school, speak near-fluent German, Spanish and decent Russian (and obvs English), member of Combined Cadet Force Army Section, winner of regional linguist award, member of Liberal Democrat party and "Britain Stronger in Europe"/volunteered for elections and EU referendum, attended talk at Washington Post about Trump's fiscal policy, UCL lecture on American foreign policy, winning national Spanish debating competitions, individual and delegations awards at biggest Model United Nations in UK, independent research on how long ISIS can last and development of far-right nationalism in Europe...that' all I can think of rn
