Geography
Geography students hold the key to the world’s problems.
Michael Palin

The world we live in is changing. Geography allows one to see how and why it is changing.

The A Level course has been designed to attract students to a variety of topics that address key ideas and debates in our world today. Geography can enhance communication skills, literacy and numeracy, IT literacy, spatial awareness, team working, problem solving and environmental awareness. Practical work is an integral part of the course.

Course Requirements

Students opting for Geography must have a strong background at GCSE. We would recommend that students have at least a grade B in the higher Geography paper. Students will need to have a lively and enquiring mind, an interest in the environment and current affairs, a willingness to explore new ideas, keenness to research independently and an ability to communicate ideas effectively.

Opportunities

Geography combines well with almost all other AS and A Level subjects. Taken with Science and Mathematics, it supports applications for almost any science-based university course like Engineering, Oceanography and Geology; taken with Arts and Humanities subjects like English, History and Economics, Geography supports courses such as Law, Environmental Management, Politics and Business. Since Geography develops the transferable skills that employers are looking for, it can lead to a range of opportunities such as Marketing, Social/Health Services, Advertising, Finance and Education.
