Career Opportunities

An A-Level in Geography, when combined with other A-Levels, or a Professional and Technical Qualification, may lead to further study at degree level.

Geography A-Level is well respected for enabling students to develop skills in writing and critical analysis.  This is a valued background for many higher education / degree level courses.

Students may also progress from A-Level Geography into higher level apprenticeships in related areas such a conservation or land management.
