Masters of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation

Applicants who hold a Bachelor of Geoinformation Technology Honours or a four-year pre-NQF qualification with a research component or an equivalent qualification at NQF Level 8, from a recognised institution will be admitted into the programme.

Applicants may be required to make up specific deficiencies and attend a pre-selection interview and/or test at the discretion of the Postgraduate Studies Committee.

Applicants from other institutions are required to submit detailed information on all courses in their previous qualifications, as well as contact details of three referees. The latter also applies to applicants who have been working in the field subsequent to obtaining their previous qualifications. Exceptions may be approved by the Postgraduate Studies Committee, and all admissions are at the discretion of the Postgraduate Studies Committee.

Career Possibilities: 
The Master of Geoinformation Science and Earth Observation will be awarded to candidates credited with a minimum of 240 NQF credits (all at level 9). Students are required to complete three compulsory courses worth 60 credits, three elective courses worth 60 credits, and a master thesis worth 120 credits.
