Where does this course lead?
As an A Level Geography student, you will have access to a wide range of possible career and Higher Education opportunities. Many students, on completing A Level Geography, progress onto Higher Education courses in Geography or Environmental Science. In 2016, 90% of A Level Geography students progressed from Carmel to University, with 50% reading Geography or a Geography related subject. Increasing numbers of students are now studying degrees in Sustainable Development, Geographical Information Systems and Environmental Management. You will be able to build on your Geography, and as many former students have done, move into specialist careers in development, ecosystems and environmental management, land and water processes, cartography and computing, population, settlement and industry as well as tourism and recreation. The list is endless!
I have loved studying Geography at Carmel.

You will make friends with people from all over the place and get a quality of teaching that is hard to find anywhere else.
