Geography AS/A Level at Bury College

Course description

Geography is an engaging and flexible course allowing you to study the relationships between human populations and their physical environments at a variety of stages from the local to the global. You will consider your own role in relation to the key issues being studied as geography is relevant to all our lives. You will have the opportunity to engage in practical fieldwork activities, and in the past this has included an overseas visit to Iceland and New York, as well as class based activities. There are also occasional lecture events and guest speakers.

Entry requirements

To take four or more AS subjects in your first year and carry through to at least three full A Levels in year two, you need six GCSEs at grades A*-C, including two subjects at grade B and English and Geography (if taken) at grade C or above.
