SQA’s Geography qualifications provide a broad range of flexible learning contexts covering physical, human and global geographical environments, and bring together the natural and social sciences.

The Courses provide geographical perspectives on important issues concerning the environment, sustainability and citizenship, and offer challenging, coherent and enjoyable journeys for learners who progress through levels. They encourage fieldwork and the use of local environments and the acquisition of geographical skills.
