The Advanced Higher qualification in Geography gives learners an in-depth understanding of complex ideas about how the world works. It also gives them the chance to carry out their own research, with an emphasis on fieldwork.
Learners will be able to use sophisticated geographical methods to gather information. They will be able to use statistics to analyse this data and spot relationships within it. They will be able to describe and summarise different viewpoints and evaluate them critically.
The Advanced Higher Geography Course is at SCQF level 7.
