    Politics and IR
    Hi there, hope this isn't too late but I have a couple questions:
    1) I'm considering studying politics and IR and exeter is up there in terms of rankings. The only thing that's deterred me is that I've heard that politics is a useless degree with little transferable skills and grads struggle to find jobs. Is this true? What kind of jobs do grads usually get into?
    2)In regard to social life at exeter, I've heard that sports is a really big thing. As a non sporty person this isn't very encouraging. Is it possible to make friends/have a good time at Exeter without being heavily involved in sport?

    You should do what you enjoy. Exeter has amazing careers provision and will help you no matter your degree! Sport is big but I'm not sporty and you'll have a great time without sport
