A2 Geography is required

When considering the entry qualifications of applicants, we will primarily look to their main level 3 qualifications, such as A Levels, when making an offer. The Welsh Baccalaureate, will be considered to enhance an application over the tariff point threshold, rather than contribute towards it. We do not consider it as the equivalent to an A level. Only a proportion of the points (typically 16-24) from it will be accepted for that reason. We encourage applicants to work to their full potential and acknowledge the workload requirement to study other qualifications alongside their main level 3 study, however, we feel that the main focus of any academic study should be the A level subjects

Environmental geography

This Geography and Environmental Management focused course is multidisciplinary in nature and will introduce you to elements of environment, society and economy before moving on to topics such as sustainable development and environmental management. You will gain practical knowledge of geographic information systems (GIS) applications and will develop a detailed understanding of environmental planning legislation, waste/resource management issues and environmental management. Practical field skills are an important element of this course and you will benefit from a residential field course in the UK during your first and fourth year of study. Year two students will undertake a field expedition to a European location. Final year students will be given the opportunity to develop an independent research project on a geographical/environmental topic of their choice; they will also learn about specialist current topics such as sustainable energy.This programme has been accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). Accredited degree programmes contain a solid academic foundation in geographical knowledge and skills, and prepare graduates to address the needs of the world beyond higher education. The accreditation criteria require evidence that graduates from accredited programmes meet defined sets of learning outcomes, including subject knowledge, technical ability and transferable skills.
