The course aims to inspire students by the world around them. It will develop and apply their understanding of geographical concepts and processes. Students will become adept in the use and application of skills and new technologies through their studies both in and outside the classroom. Students will improve as critical and reflective learners, who are aware of the importance of attitudes and values, including their own. They will also develop into global citizens who recognise the challenges of sustainability and the implications for their own and others’ lives.
For Geography, a GCSE grade B or above in Geography would provide the most suitable foundation.
Geographers are highly regarded by employers due to the wide range of skills they possess and their ability to analyse and interpret information. The subject relates well to a range of careers from Civil Engineering, Meteorology, Education, Planning, Management, Tourism, Geology to Environmental Consultancy.
