With the threat of Climate Change and its impact on all aspects of life there has never been a more important time to study a subject that explains the dynamic interplay of humankind and the natural world. Geography at CAST is based on a balanced framework of physical and human geography and it allows students to investigate the link between the two themes. At CAST we encourage students to develop a problem-solving approach to contemporary geographical challenges so that students are inspired by the immediate relevance of the subject matter and empowered by knowledge that they can make a difference.
Minimum entry requirements for A level courses: 7 GCSEs at grade 9-4 (including English grade 4) with double or triple science (grade 6/6) and Maths (grade 5).
