    I have received offers and am confused as to what to put as my firm choice. I was going to put Durham as my first, solely down to its good reputation, however I've been reading that their International Relations department is a bit naff in comparison to their other departments. I do like the sound of the Durham course, but I like the look of the modules for History and International Relations more, for which the History department is supposedly one of the best. Which will employers value more highly: an International Relations degree from Durham, or History and International Relations from Exeter? Pros and cons of both degrees?

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    I guess the starting point is that they are different courses. So check the detailed modules to see which you want to do most. How much History do you want to do, for example.
    From an employment perspective, both are general degrees, unless you wish to work in international political related areas, in which case this element may be directly useful.
    On reputation, both are good unis but durham is generally regarded as stronger.
    I would suggest visiting both before firming one.
