We take students across the globe, widening their knowledge and giving them a thirst for more while maintaining a balance between physical and human geography. In response to today’s rapidly evolving world, students study highly relevant topics, such as changing rural and urban environments, with an emphasis on contemporary issues such as waste management and sustainable cities.
Challenge & Extension: Students keep abreast of current issues through regular reading of news articles and subject specific periodicals and books. They are also encouraged to watch programmes such as 'Coast Australia' (BBC2) and ‘Caribbean’ by Simon Reeve so that they consider issues from a range of perspectives and can challenge pre-conceived ideas.
Students attend regional lectures and quizzes organised by the Geographical Association and have also entered the annual national ‘Young Geographer’ competition, achieving runner-up position from 400 entries.
