Geography 2014-2015

“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual challenge. It is the greatest source of effect on humanity, and us on it; the study of which makes life worth living.”


Sir David Attenborough  - a famous Geographer and Scientist


Geography is continuing to grow rapidly in popularity at BIS Hanoi, especially as an option at IGCSE, and as of next year, A-Level too! It is pleasing to see that students and parents realise the important role the study of Geography has as both universities and postgraduate employers see a qualification in Geography as an asset to the candidate’s application. It is a subject that encourages students to apply the theory and knowledge from other academic subjects in different contexts, but it also is excellent at developing a student’s transferrable skills. For example; being able to communicate in a reasoned, balanced and articulate manner, having a keen sense of inquiry about the world around us, being open-minded, caring and principled about different people’s perspectives, and when necessary, having the confidence to take informed risks when dealing with complex issues or problems. These are all highly valued characteristics a well-rounded BIS student should aspire to master.
