AS/A Level Geography Course
Exam board: WJEC
AS Level: 2110QS – A Level: 1110QS
Geography is a fascinating and ever changing subject. It is a subject which, more than any other, empowers people to understand the earth and the complex interactions between people and places on a variety of scales.
Geography encourages enthusiasm for the world in which we live, independence of thought, and adds meaning to world events. Geographers question the world and seek to understand it, linking a variety of facts to reach reasoned answers
Students learn vital skills such as data collection and presentation, statistical analysis and fieldwork observation.A systematic programme of physical and human fieldwork is undertaken throughout the AS and A2 course in locations around Swansea and Internationally.
Geography is intrinsically valuable as part of a student’s broader education and improves their skills base. It is a much valued traditional subject, which is well respected by both universities and employers. It is a subject in its own right but is also very useful as a qualification for careers concerned with Law, Management, Accounts and Economics, The Media, Surveying, Property Development, Civil Service and Natural Sciences.
