Recommended Prior Learning

Geography is a UE level course that has a heavy reading and writing component.  It is very difficult to pick up Geography at Level 3 without having done it before. It is very challenging, so students will need to work hard. Achieving at Merit / Excellence at Level 2 in English and  / or another Social Science subject would be the preference if you are wanting to come back to Level 3 Geography after completing Level 1 successfully. Ideally students progressing into Level 3 would have gained an achieved in at least one of the externals offered in Level 2 Geography and would have gained 14 credits in total in Geography.
