Why Study Geography? 

As the world becomes ever more interconnected, Geography provides A level students with the analytical skills needed to help them make sense of its increasing complexity. Mastering the global issues of today, from climate change to inequality, requires both a strong appreciation of change over space and time, alongside knowledge and understanding of the myriad of sub-disciplines that form Geography. 

Le cours 

Geography, and the world we study, is ever-changing. That is why our A level reflects the world around us and fosters an understanding of what could impact its future. Geography matters. That is why we have chosen an A level board which focuses on fundamental processes and environments, but that also reflects the world around us. For instance, we link the water and carbon cycles to water insecurity and energy security – this way we ensure that the course is relevant and engaging. Students can build on what they have learned at GCSE and what they see in the world today. 

By the time you complete your A level course you should have knowledge and understanding of: 

  • Why our human and physical environments and landscapes appear as they are, how they form and operate, and how they interrelate at various scales 
  • How and why patterns of human and physical features differ from place to place across the earth 
  • Differences and inequality within the human world; especially the economic, social and political causes of inequality and economic development 
  • The importance of different spatial scales – global to local – and time scales for physical and human processes, together with their interactions and interdependence 
  • The way in which particular places and regions have evolved to be distinctive 

The unique landscape of Jersey makes it an ideal setting for fieldwork. At A level we have developed a manageable and meaningful approach to fieldwork, and to ensure students can focus on exploring Geography in practice, we have taken the guesswork out of fieldwork and offer a clear and comprehensive support package for students to build their fieldwork skills and support them in the writing up and presentation of their reports 


Geographers are excellent at synthesising complex ideas, thinking critically and making informed decisions. Alongside these skills, they are also socially aware, strong communicators and brilliant at working in teams. As more and more of our students pursue careers with multi-national employers, it is no wonder that geographers are so much in demand. In fact, Geography graduates enjoy some of the highest employability rates and our students have gone on to a wide range of diverse professions. Geographers are passionate communicators, and this is a highly prized skill in the modern workplace. 

There has never been a better or more important time to study Geography. With growing interest in issues such as climate change, migration, environmental degradation and social cohesion, geography is one of the most relevant courses you could choose to study. Whatever your passion for the world – fascination with landscapes or concerns about inequality – geography will provide you with knowledge and transferable skills that will reward you personally and advance you professionally.
