Your A Level in Geography could lead to a wide range of career paths including conservation, teaching, urban land-use planning, environmental management, overseas development, cartography, climatology and travel writing.
Once you’re trained in your chosen field, your qualification will open up a whole new world of possibilities – you could go on to become a teacher, town planner, architect, conservation officer or a journalist.
Your A Level Geography course comprises four main topics. These are water and carbon cycles, landscape systems, global systems and global governance, and changing places.
In water and carbon cycles, you will study the physical processes which control the cycling of both water and carbon between land, oceans and the atmosphere. In landscape systems, you will take part in an integrated study of earth surface processes, landforms and resultant landscapes. For global systems and global governance, you will study the greater connectivity between people, places and environments across the globe. In the changing places module, you will further
develop your geographical knowledge by conducting research in an area that is local to you.
