Geography is the study of the physical features of the earth and its atmosphere, and how it is affected by human activities, such as the distribution of populations, resources, and political and economic activities. Geographers deal with vital issues such as climate change, migration, environmental degradation, social issues and natural hazards.
With growing interest in issues such as climate change, migration, environmental degradation and social cohesion Geography is one of the most relevant subjects you could choose to study. A level students cover a broad scope of materials and gain vital insights into the world around us.
More than 80 UK universities offer Geography related degrees covering a wide range of topics and specialisms. Geography graduates are some of the most employable, having developed knowledge and transferrable skills that enable them to work across a wide range of sectors and roles.
Typical geography careers include environmental consultation, cartography, town planning, conservation, surveying, landscape architecture, teaching, disaster management, international aid and tourism.
