16 Things Everyone Who Studies Politics at University Will Understand
“Does watching House of Cards count as revision?”
1. Immediately starting to question life and society as you know it.
2. And accidentally ending up in political debates outside of uni all the time.
3. Wishing people would stop automatically assuming that you want to be a politician.
Or Prime Minister.
4. And learning that it’s easier to hold your tongue when people start incorrectly discussing politics.
5. Actually changing plans so that you can watch some real life political drama unfold.
6. Or binge watching a fictional one and calling it revision.
7. The joy of finally getting your head around a really complicated aspect of political theory.
8. Only to then discover that several new books have since been published that contradict everything you just learnt.
9. Occasionally not even knowing how to respond to some of the dubious ideas thrown around in seminars.
10. Especially when you then see some of them discussed by actual politicians.
“If you’d been been in our seminar last week I could’ve told you that wasn’t a good idea.”
11. Not quite believing how many people don’t know the difference between a Politics degree and a Law degree.
They are completely different..?
