Hi, So I'm in Year 13 and don't know what to do at Uni. I know that i'd like to work in the Private sector ideally in London when I graduate and I would like a career with a good salary ideally. I was going to study law but I'm not sure and I'm panicking about the entry requirements. I'm aiming for AAB in my exams and the Unis available for Law aren't that high in the leagues and I was aiming for a Russell Group. I also Like the idea of studying Politics/ Business management. Would it be better to do one of those degrees at a Russell group or Law at a less competitive uni. Is there another degree I have overlooked that could achieve what I want? Thanks for all the help! I'm really worried about job prospects when I graduate.

Completely normal to be thinking about job prospects.

Other degrees besides Law, Business or Politics
It depends what you want to become so to avoid doing conversion courses after doing 3 years undergrad I'd be clear with that. What about Human Resources does that interest you?

Personal Experience
As someone who did a Business Related degree in a non-russell Uni and found it hard to find a graduate job I'd avoid Business at all costs. However, there may be a dual degree where you can do Business and Law combined which might be off interest so atleast you have the Law Degree in there too. So check that out when applying..

Law Degree or Law apprenticeship
I am guessing you know you can become a solicitor via a degree route or a non-degree routes such as a Solicitor Apprenticeship and I am sure with you being based in London there will be plenty of top/multinational law firms who would love your college grades too if you didn't want to go to University and you can start earning too straight after college which is a bonus. Apply for both then see what happens..

Law
There is a great route map into law at this site: https://www.prospects.ac.uk/jobs-and-work-experience/job-sectors/law-sector/law-careers

https://nationalcareers.service.gov..../law-and-legal

If you want to be a solicitor, then do a law degree then SQE course and find a training contract. But if you want to be a barrister, it will be the GDL route. You don't have to have a law degree to work in law as you can do a conversion course after undergrad degree.
