Geography A Level at Hammersmith Academy

Course description

Geography challenges opinions, broadens the mind and sharpens key skills. Few subjects can boast the same breadth and contemporary relevance.

The specification has been designed to allow geographers the flexibility to build programmes that suit their own particular interests and needs using a range of approaches. Those geographers with interests in distinct physical, human and environmental approaches will be able to use this specification, as will those with more integrated specialisms. Fieldwork and research skills are a key feature of units at both AS and A2.

All units allow a balance between students’ own particular physical, human and/or environmental interests and key geographical topics that will provide the knowledge, understanding and skills for further study at higher education or for employment. Geography leads to a wide range of career opportunities. These include environmental consultancy, international development work, law, marketing, urban regeneration and TV research.

Entry requirements

Eight or more GCSEs at grades A*–C, as well as a minimum grade B in English Language and Geography, or another Humanities subject.
