Hello everyone

I've got offers from those two universities. BA Sociology : Durham (AAB) and BSc Politics and International Relations : Exeter (AAA). But I don't know which to firm!!

I lived in Durham (it was lovely!) for 3 years and there're lots of friends there. Also, Durham should be much higher when it comes to both domestic and international rankings, which thus I reckon Durham can be more favoured by employers?? So yes it's hard to simply abandon Durham… But I'm more interested in the course at Exeter. Besides I'm thinking of working in some International organisation in the future. I've never been to Exeter so I saw several videos on youtube yet it wasn't that lovely…

P.S. I'm sure I'll proceed to a masters degree. If I ever take Sociology in Durham, will it be okay to study Politics or IR in postgraduate?

Which university should I take? Please provide me with some insights 😌

If you prefer the course at Exeter I would do that one. It is still a great uni, and the area like most places has rough areas but it is rather lovely. Why did you choose to apply for Sociology at Durham and Politics and International Relations at Exeter?

I’m confused, are you in clearing? How are you making a decision between two top universities two weeks after A level results came out? In any case it depends on what you take more seriously. Enjoying your course or having a higher chance of good employment. In all honesty I don’t think sociology is as an esteemed degree as politics and international relations regardless of where you receive it. Exeter isn’t a bad university anyway.

Thank you for your response! Well…sadly I was rejected from Durham, BA international relations. But I've got Sociology instead. I was also interested in Sociology as IR itself is an interdisciplinary subject and I thought I could pave a different perspective towards Politics or IR by studying Sociology…
