About the course
Geography focuses on understanding the relationships between people and their varied environments and the issues which arise from these relationships. During the course, students will learn to use a range of transferra-ble skills which include collecting, analysing and interpreting data, communicating information in a variety of ways and decision making skills.
An A Level in Geography develops your understanding of physical and human geography from a local through to a global scale. You will develop practical fieldwork skills as you explore and think critically about the interactions between people and the environment and the issues arising.
