I have really enjoyed studying Geography at Carmel. The dedication and passion for the students that has been shown from both Rachael and Kieron is truly inspiring and has resulted in the quality of teaching being unmatched. I couldn’t have asked for greater levels of personalised support throughout the course, being encouraged to achieve our best whilst also being treated respectfully as adults such as allowing us to ask for extensions on deadlines to balance our workload and allow us to complete work to a higher level as a result.
Geography has also been the subject within which I have connected with the widest variety of students, making and spending time with friends who are just as passionate for the subject, resulting in students actively wanting to spend time in the classrooms and engage with the wider geography of the world.
The course will help me on an architecture degree at university as it has given me a wider perspective on the physical and sustainable future of design that is becoming more prominent now and will be a key feature in the future of architecture.
It has also given me insight in human geography giving me perspective on the basic human needs and habits of a population which will allow me to think about the requirements of my future designs responding to people and their needs on a deeper level than other people will be able to.
