What careers can I pursue with Biology, Geography.

I study Geography and Biology at A Level now and I’m so worried about what exactly I want to study at uni. I like Biology a bit more that Geography, but most courses such as Microbiology, BioMedical Sciences that I’ve been researching require extra sciences when I only take Biology. Is anyone in my exact position and can shed some light? Please?

I study Geography and Biology at A-Level and although it seems you don't have many choices, have you ever considered doing the following degrees:

Marine Biology

Environmental Science

BSc Geography (different from BA Geography)

Just a general Biology degree (Geography may be classed as a science-based subject here)

Zoology

There's more but my brain cells are still regenerating right now.

In addition to JA03's suggestions, here are some examples from going through the course list at Lancaster Uni:

Earth and Environmental Science

Ecology and Conservation
https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/ecology-and-conservation-bsc-hons-c180/

Zoology
https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/zoology-bsc-hons-c300/

Natural Sciences
https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/natural-sciences-bsc-hons-gfc0/

Geography is accepted as a science for all of the above.

There are also courses such a Agricultural Sciences, Plant Biology, Food Science, etc.

Hi,
I'm a third year Ecology and Conservation student at Lancaster Uni. Here's the course information if you want to look at it: https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/ecology-and-conservation-bsc-hons-c180/#overview6 Geography and Biology are both included as 2 potential required subjects. There are a lot of module choices, meaning you could choose more biology related ones and tailor the degree to study what you are interested in.
Happy to answer any questions you might have!

Look at Unis like Sussex, Plymouth, Kent - they may accept Biology with Geog as a second science for Bio Science courses.
