Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Most politics or international relations graduates don't actually go into politics - although many do, as activists, fundraisers and researchers. Other popular industries include marketing and PR, management consultancy, youth and community work, the finance industry and academic research (you usually need a postgraduate degree to get into research). Politics is a very popular postgraduate subject, and so about one in six politics graduates go on to take another course to get a Masters after they finish their degrees.

Very few students opt to take this subject, which means there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at any stats. It's a good idea to find out more about typical employment outcomes by going to an open day and speaking to tutors.
