How will I learn? 

You will be given individual support, a well structured programme and as much advice as is needed, both in and out of the lessons.

There will also be chances for fieldwork where we can investigate Geography issues out of the classroom

How will it be delivered?

The course is assessed in four parts at the end of the two years of study:

Physical Geography examination  30% of the qualification  

Human Geography examination    30% of the qualification
