Entry requirements

A Level Geography appeals to anyone with an interest in the world around them and how people interact with it. It is not a requirement that you have studied Geography at GCSE – indeed, many of the topics are likely to be new to most students - but a good standard of literacy is important. The key requirement is an open and enquiring mind as many of the topics/issues explored are amongst the most important and relevant facing humankind. If you have an interest in current affairs, the natural world or how we manage our environment, then this course will appeal to you. You should be prepared to deal with a range of data types as well as having a critical eye to analyse and evaluate different viewpoints
