    I am taking geography, biology and maths at A-level and I am thinking of a job in the field of natural disasters. What other jobs are out there for geography graduates. (Im going to take a geography centred degree, something such as geology/natural hazards/geography/earth science)

    It sounds like you've already chosen a degree (geography/earth sciences) so I'm not sure what you're asking. Can you be more specific, what do you mean by 'a job in the field of natural disasters' - do you mean researching them, or working for a charity/organisation which responds to them?

    Most jobs do not require a specific degree, you could do almost anything with a earth science/physical geography degree (e.g. teaching, research, working for NGOs, the civil service, engineering companies, business, accounting, banking, management.. etc).

    I would love to do either (research or work for a response organisation)
    What do you mean by research?
