Title: Which undergrad degree prepares you the best?
Post by Sophist on Aug 29th, 2009 at 11:39am
This year I'm going to university to study either History, Philosophy or English Literature. My long-term plan is to apply for the 2-year accelerated LLB course at Glasgow or Strathclyde; is any one of my chosen subjects more advantageous to gaining entry than the others? Or is the discipline irrelevant so long as the class is 2.1 or above? Of the 3 I'd definitely prefer to do Philosophy, but for some reason I feel this may look the weakest. I know it might be a bit early to be planning so far ahead but for financial reasons I sort of have to. I'd very much appreciate any guidance.

I think your three subjects are similar to an extent and so would be irrelevant for the purpose of gaining entry to the Acc LLB. A 2:1 Honours degree is required but universities make no explicit preference as to what that should be in. So just do what you feel you would enjoy most!
