A-Level Geography

 A-Level Geography

A Level Geography provides students with a dynamic, contemporary and exciting opportunity to engage with the world around them.  At UAH we hope to inspire a love of geography for lifelong learning, drawing on issues that are relevant to a student’s own learning of the subject in a variety of contexts. 

We follow the OCR Geography specification and it has been designed to strengthen geographical and fieldwork skills gained at GCSE and delve more deeply into content.

At least a 6 in GCSE Geography. However, taking Geography at GCSE is not necessary to undertake an AS level course as most of the topics will be new. A willingness to read more widely beyond the work set in class is essential. Students who have not studied GCSE Geography will require at least a grade 6 in GCSE English language.

A Level Geography can open up a range of career opportunities including town planning, cartography, teaching, environmental consultancy and as an international aid or development worker.  The transferable skills you will learn, such as problem solving, are also useful for many other areas, such as engineering.
