There has never been a better or more important time to study geography. With growing global and media interest in issues such as climate change and tectonic hazard mitigation, geography is one of the most relevant courses you could choose to study. Some topics studied will be familiar from GCSE studies whereas others will be new and focussing on current issues covered in the news and social media. It’s not all theory - you’ll have the opportunity to visit places of geographic interest and roll up your sleeves with some fieldwork!
