Geography AS/A Level at The Maelor School

Course description

Geography sits at the interface of science and humanities. Through studying geography, you become a more diverse person with an open view of the world. Geography is a constantly changing field. The department runs popular international trips (past trips include Iceland and Pompeii) as well as local visits to Liverpool to study redevelopment and Snowdonia to look at the causes of flooding.
During the course you will learn why the world we live in is constantly changing. You will further develop crucial skills such as communication, numeracy, spatial awareness, problem solving, team working, IT literacy and environmental awareness.
Geographers going on to study at degree level can take the subject through a science route leading to a BSC or a social science route leading to a BA. As a well-regarded facilitating subject, Geography is highly valued by many top universities, regardless of the degree you go on to take and as such is useful in combination with a range of arts or science subjects.

Entry requirements

5A*-C at GCSE in at least four different subjects, including English Language; C in Geography or a B in another Humanities subject if Geography was not taken at GCSE
