Entry requirements


Normally a Grade C or above at GCSE.  (However, we have had some students in the past who did not do Geography at GCSE but were successful at Advanced Level.  If in doubt come and talk to us.)  Students will need to complete a fieldwork study, which will involve a residential trip.  The Department are hoping to take Advanced Level students on a fieldwork study of Iceland.  A Grade B in English and Maths at GCSE is also a necessary requirement for this course.



This is by examination.  There is no fieldwork write up to do.
