Geology A level at King Edward VI Sixth Form College
Geology is a detective story where the evidence is old, fragmented and tortured by the earth’s heaving. In this course, you will develop the skills and techniques to solve some of the earth’s puzzles.
The AS course introduces you to the ideas of geology and is equally divided between theory and practical. The A2 course develops the AS ideas further and includes modules on natural resources and climate change.
Fieldwork is a vital component and you will spend several days out locally as well as on residential trips in the Lake District and North Wales. There will also be the opportunity to join the annual field courses further abroad – recent trips have been to the Himalayas, Iceland and Kenya.
We do not expect you to have studied Geology before and there are no specific GCSE subjects required
