Geography is a traditional academic A level classed by the Russell Group of Universities (the UK’s leading 24 Universities excluding Oxbridge) as one of their ‘preferred’ or ‘facilitating’ subjects for University applicants.
The skills you develop in geography will also help with a long and varied list of related careers. For example law, accountancy, public services, urban planning, leisure, tourism, the armed forces and environmental work. Statistics show that compared with other subjects, Geographers are among the most employable.
