I’m currently studying a level 3 travel and tourism national diploma, which I’m predicted to receive D*D at the end of the two years. I’ve looked at various universities to apply for, and if I receive the correct grades I’ll have enough UCAS points to apply for. My question is if international Relations could be associated with travel and tourism? As I’m hoping to apply to this uni degree or global development and politics, although I don’t study these subjects at a levels. I’d hate to apply for a degree and end up failing.

Hi charlieeexo

It is great to hear that you are interested in studying at university.

I would say that you have nothing to fear. The core skills of IR can be found in your current qualification, i.e good grammar, critical thinking, construction of an argument. You will also have your first year at university to really get to terms with the specifics of the course and the field. One of the main reasons why universities don't count Year 1 towards your final classification, or at least very little, is that students need an opportunity to get to grips with academic work.

I would recommend having a read of some core textbooks to help you understand what I being said. This will help you hit the ground running for th start of university.

Hope this helps.
Dom
