Course Overview

Are you looking for a diverse subject that covers a range of contemporary topics? From climate change to globalisation; from dynamic landscapes and glaciation to geopolitics – A Level Geography helps us to understand how our planet works and how to be global citizens.

A Level Geography students develop a range of transferable skills that make them a good fit for analytical or science-based subjects at university, as well as attractive to a variety of potential employers. Students enjoy the opportunity to get out of the classroom on fieldwork and residential trips at home and abroad.

What will I learn?

• You will develop a broad geographical understanding of interconnected physical and human topics, from global tectonics to contemporary debates on identity and energy security.
• Fieldwork and research are an extremely important part of the geographical inquiry process, so you will be required to complete a minimum of four days guided fieldwork and research that helps to prepare us for an independent coursework integration project, submitted in the 2nd year of study.

How will the course be assessed?

• You will be assessed by external examinations at the end of the 2-year course.
