QE6 Extras / Co-Curriculum Opportunities
A Level Geography has high academic value at good universities and graduates are recognised as some of the most employable – often in government or business decision-making in finance, marketing and tourism, as well as environmental consultancy, landscape architecture, meteorology and planning. Geography supports applications for many science-based university courses like Engineering, Environmental Science, Oceanography and Meteorology; or degrees such as Business, Law, Media, Politics, Urban Planning, International Development and International Relations. Students may also go straight into employment training, e.g. law, business, accountancy and journalism.
