Most students who study Politics go on to university, and many decide either to continue with Politics and/or International Relations (for which they will be very well prepared) or to study History. Some students decide to study Law or Journalism as postgraduate options, and Politics provides an excellent grounding for these professions. Politics is also useful for students planning to join graduate training schemes, as employers view the subject as serious and challenging. Of course, many students make no direct use of the qualification, instead, they take with them a higher level of insight into the world, and there is no substitute in life for knowledge.
