Geography A Level
A Level Geography runs over two years and incorporates many key and current issues in physical and human Geography.
You will study six modules spread over two years, as well as combining coursework and fieldwork as part of your studies. Each unit links human and physical geography together and explores key features shaping the world we live in. The course will see you study a wide range of case studies; from the features that shaped Torbay, to the deadly Super-typhoon Haiyan that devastated the Philippines.
The coursework element will see you create your own question to investigate a geographical issue of your choice and really delve deeper into an area of Geography that appeals to you, culminating in a 4000 word report about your findings. Fieldwork is also a key element of the course, to show real life examples of the topics that we cover.
We have previously conducted residential visits to Dorset, where students visited the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

“I began my journey studying on the Adventure Sports course here at South Devon College. The course provided a foundation of practical and theoretical skills which allowed me to launch an exciting and rewarding career in different locations around the UK and abroad. Since then I have supported a variety of people with their own adventurous ambitions.”Andy Bennett
