I’m planning on studying politics and international relations and considering applying to SOAS or UCL and the employment rate as shown on UCAS is shockingly low (as low as 45%). I would have guessed it had to do with many people studying that course to enter into law (the courses also have incredibly high further education metrics) but it still feelings incredibly low and I’m wondering if that’s a red flag?

Its a meaningless statistic.
It doesnt tell you how much of this 'employment' was in unskilled work, or how many grads are doing postgrad courses, or whatever else.

Do not base your UCAS choices on this sort of stuff.
Go to Open Days, listen to subject talks, ask existing students some questions - and make up your own mind.
