The International GCSE Geography is designed to help students better understand the world around us. With this understanding, we believe our students will be well-positioned to shape the future of our planet, both on a political level, and a scientific one too.
Whether it’s helping students understand the science behind climate change or the policies that affect it, we believe that the International GCSE Geography is a key qualification that consistently delivers well-rounded and progressive ideas that have the potential to truly make a difference.
It is a great course for those that are passionate about the environment, as well as those thinking about studying international relations or politics later down the line.
Throughout the course, students will study a number of topics across six core modules, the titles of which are detailed below.
- Geographical Skills
- River Environments
- Coastal Environments
- Economic Activity and Energy
- Urban Environments
- Fragile Environments
Oxford Home Schooling’s International GCSE Geography course is designed to prepare students for the Edexcel International GCSE in Geography (4GE1).

For students with an International GCSE Geography, the world is their oyster.
While many students go on to study Geography at A level, others use their International GCSE as a springboard into other subject areas, such as politics, biology and even physics.
Later down the line, those with an International GCSE in Geography make excellent university students, before going on to pursue an ambitious career in an array of professional industries. With this qualification, students won’t be restricted in their options.
