    I'm applying mostly for history degrees, but as I love languages and history (and am fairly good at Spanish) and the entry requirements are lower so I'm going to apply for at least one "Hispanic studies and History" degree (at Nottingham).
    My only preoccupation that it won't be as useful as a history degree. I'm thinking of possible career opportunities as teaching or working in a museum but nothing is yet set in stone. I don't want to finish my degree and be left with the regret of not having chosen a history course.

    I think adding a language to your degree makes it more valuable! Not many people study languages so employers are constantly looking for people who do, plus it helps you develop real-life skills that you can write in application forms and covering letters. Go for it

    How well does this course fit in with your desire to study the history of warfare or of the USSR, which you expressed in your other thread? https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5027252
