How this course fulfils the specification

Students will see an urban landscape, with opportunities to discuss the differences between different parts of Birmingham.

The fieldwork focuses on the development of enquiry skills throughout the investigation process, and suggested work prior or following this session lends itself to enabling students to practise geographical skills such as map skills, graphical skills, cartographical skills and numerical skills.
