The world we live in is changing: Geography allows you to see why and how. Studying Geography can enhance your communication, literacy, numeracy and IT skills; your sense of spatial and environmental awareness; your ability to solve problems and work as part of a team. We follow the Edexcel Geography specification. There are no additional entry requirements for AS-level Geography above the college’s general entry conditions, but you’ll need to be curious about the world’s places, peoples and environments. You should enjoy asking questions and finding answers; be interested in local, regional and global issues, and have the ability to think independently. Above all, you must be prepared to leave the classroom and see for yourself what is going on!
To study Geography at Bilborough, you need a minimum grade B/5 or above in Maths and English GCSE, and if you have taken Geography at GCSE, a minimum grade C/4 in that subject.
