Is it ok to apply to courses that have different names but are similar, such as 'History and International Relations' and 'History and Politics'? How does this work in terms of the personal statement?

That’s absolutely fine! In terms of personal statement, you need to make it work for all of your degree courses as you only get to do one personal statement (unless you apply for FCH at Exeter in which case you can do a separate one)

IR is just 'international politics' so as long as you discuss both subjects and why you want to study them together, job done.

Hey there,

This is absolutely fine - what you'll find is there are many courses that have slight variations in name depending on the university. If you go on each university's website you'll be able to find a list of the modules taught on that course, giving you a rough idea of the content. If the content is similar enough, you can use one personal statement for all of those courses.

Best of luck!
