    Hey guys,

    I hope some of you can help. I'm contemplating studying a degree in Politics with International Relations and English at Aberdeen University and am wondering if that would make me highly employable?

    I'm looking for a high paying career as money is one of my paramount motivations in a career.

    What positions could be gained with such a Politics degree that pay a good salary?

    Any help/advice is gratefully recieved - please help me out guys.



    Thanks

    ive gradutaed with politics degree..i wanna know same question any advice?

    only option ive found is to add on like postgrading but

    convert on a CPE/LPC - 2yrs
    convert onto a GEP or 5yr med course
    do a PGCE - 1yr

    or do a phd

    There are few graduate careers which will specify the need for a degree in politics, igos or ngos will ask for social sciences, those that do tend to require a post graduate qualification.

    However 60% of all jobs are non-degree specific, just go apply for them like everyone else, i doubt companies will specifically favour someone with a politics degree over history/english but it shows you are literate i guess.

    Did you want to go into a political job or just high paid city? For politics theres an awesome article from the guardian a while ago called 'the politicians apprentice', try digging that up

    There are loads of jobs you can get on graduation if you look for them

    Not all require post-grad qualifications.
