The Cambridge A Level Geography syllabus builds upon skills gained at IGCSE/GCSE (or equivalent) level of study. You will widen your knowledge and understanding of the subject, while developing your investigative abilities and your evaluation and decision-making skills.
The syllabus is wide-ranging and comprises a variety of options. For example, you can study topics such as hydrology and fluvial geomorphology, atmosphere and weather, rocks and weathering, population change and settlement dynamics. The syllabus considers a range of environments, from tropical to arid, and you can also study subjects such as environmental management, global interdependence and economic transition.
Note that our experienced University Services Adviser can advise on A Level courses and all aspects of university entrance including application support and references. These services are easy to access though our booking form.

Geography and Environmental Management are such important subjects, especially today! They teach us what the world we live in is like, how it came to be this way and what it may look like in the future.BSc, PGCE Subject: Geography & Environmental Management View Profile
As a first time home-schooled student, Wolsey Hall Oxford has proved very successful and helped me to obtain the results I wanted. Not only does Wolsey offer a very well structured and focussed course but also has very insightful, informative and supportive tutors who are willing to go that extra mile to reply and explain each and every query. Through Wolsey Hall I managed to come out with completely 'A' grades in each AS level I took and I owe it to my Tutors for being there and helping me through it all; I couldn't have done it without them (especially Carol - Geography Tutor, who always went the extra step to make things easier for me). I have now got into University!
If you want results - look no further. Thanks Wolsey Hall!
