Geography A Level at Drapers' Academy

Course description

Learn about the world you live in! In a fascinating and inspiring new syllabus you will learn about the physical interactions occurring at a global scale as well as zooming in on parts of the world both close to home as well as some far flung destinations. With perhaps comfortingly familiar GCSE topics such as hazards and population sitting side by side with brand new topics such as the carbon cycle and global governance, there has never been a better time to study geography at A level. Geography is a great subject to pair with sciences, maths or other humanities subjects because of the wide range of transferable skills it incorporates.

Course content

Assessed on:
- Physical Geography and People and the Environment
- Human Geography and Fieldwork Investigation.
