Are UNIGIS Students 'different'?
Most UNIGIS students have obtained a first qualification in a 'spatial' discipline or in a subject serving as a technical foundation for GIS. Typically students have professional experience in a related field and prefer distance education due to ongoing professional, family or social committments.
 
Pursuing in-service postgraduate education is a major challenge to sustained motivation, time management and dedicated hard work.  
 
UNIGIS alumni become an integral part of a widespread and international network of professionals engaged in various branches in the extensive field of GIS. 

Our institutional, business and industry partners support students to meet the demands of the GIS job market through free or discounted learning materials, books and software.
