Geography A level at Hills Road Sixth Form College

Course description

A rapidly changing world scene makes geography a vital, dynamic and lively subject.

Why choose Geography?

You will study current and interesting issues for our world including: migration, power and borders and the changes to the earth's carbon and water cycles due to deforestation. The course is a mixture of physical and human geography and provides an opportunity to do UK and overseas fieldwork as well as an individual independent research project.

A rapidly changing world makes studying A Level Geography a useful, popular and fascinating subject to choose. Geographers are involved with investigating and solving the environmental concerns of climatic change, sea level change, pollution, population growth and landscape degradation. Being able to understand some of the processes behind the changes and being able to predict possible outcomes means that you will be able to gain important skills necessary to help manage these issues. As a geographer you will develop the excellent sills in both numeracy and literacy as well as learning how to create and design your own maps using Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

"Geography at Hills offers various fieldwork opportunities which helped to broaden my understanding and strengthen my appreciation for the subject through first-hand and enjoyable experiences." Rhiannon Elliott
