GeographyQRThe Course

Geography A level is a very relevant subject that can be combined with a wide range of disciplines. It is a natural link between the arts and sciences. It examines physical and human landscapes and the interaction between them. It combines a wide range of transferable skills – fieldwork skills, use of statistics, graphs, diagrams, map reading, literacy/numeracy and communication skills. As the world changes rapidly good geographers are needed more than ever and this is reflected in the uptake for A level geography and how employable geographers are.

Careers & Higher Education

Many of our students go on to study geography at a higher level increasingly specialising in areas such as hydrology (rivers), urban planning, hazard management, GIS and oceanography. There are numerous related disciplines which encompass ‘environmental’ subjects. Geographers are very employable people! They are much sought after by various employers due to their transferable skills. The subject is a good preparation for the world of work and it offers careers in tourism, conservation, meteorology, environmental issues, local government and many more.
