    Thinking about what to do for Uni currently. I really love politics and want to study it further, but after doing work experience at a law firm, I really want to pursue a career in law. I also have a large love for Law. So I was thinking of doing a Politics degree then move on to do a Law GDL. Is Politics a good degree? And will help me get into good Law schools to do a GDL. I'm currently thinking on applying to Birmingham, QMUL and Southampton currently and doing A Levels in Politics, History and English Lit.

    I'm not particularly interested in becoming a politician I just find the subject fascinating. I was thinking of LLB but I'm more interested in doing a conversion course.

    Its ok. I wouldnt worry except for how you will pay for your GDL. Its essentially the same course everywhere.

    Don’t do a politics degree if you don’t want to do something in politics

    May I ask why you don’t you want to go straight into the LLB? I’m in the last year of mine and have loved every second of it.

    Multiple reasons really.

    1) Despite atm my A Level predicted grades are A,A,A. My GCSEs aren't the best so I'm not really sure if I have a good shot at Law at a good uni.

    2) My aunt works in law and recommended me to do the GDL as she said some firms like people who do GDLs because it shows that they try hard to strive for more.

    3) I really enjoy studying politics but I'm not really interested in career in Politics. I really enjoy the work experience I did at the law firm, so I thought doing the conversion course would be best for me.
