The Master of Geoinformation Science and Earth Observation is a postgraduate degree designed for registration at NQF Level 9, as an interdisciplinary programme for students with diverse natural science and social science backgrounds who desire specialised training in the use of remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS).
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 Higher Degrees 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 Higher Degrees Committee, and all admissions are at the discretion of the Higher Degrees Committee.
