A decent number of geography degrees don't require geography A-level but you will need A-levels that are connected with the subject, ie. sciences etc.

Hi mangoman34,

I hope you are well,

There may be some universities which offer a geography degree where a Geography A Level qualification is not required. To help you find a suitable university, which offers a geography degree with the A Levels you’re studying, you may want to consider having a look at the ‘UCAS Search’ tool, which will list the universities that offer a geography course. Then through the process of elimination, you can check if the university has the applicable entry requirements. And also that the university looks like a place you would like to study at.

You mentioned that you study Physics. For example, if you decide to study Geography at the University of Huddersfield, you would need to achieve a grade C or above in Physics. I am about to complete my first year studying Geography BSc(Hons). From my experiences so far, I have no regrets. Throughout the course, there has been a big focus on employability. It makes me confident that I will have ample employment opportunities after graduation. To explore the course in more detail, I would encourage you to have a look at the link below.

If you would like to find out what it is like studying geography at degree level, my classmate Molly has written a great blog outlining her experience so far.

I wish you the best of luck with your studies. And I hope you go onto enjoying studying geography at degree level.

Best Wishes,

Sam Townsend | BSc(Hons) Geography Student at The University Of Huddersfield
