Academic Requirements

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Lower Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

  • Applicants are generally expected to have a minimum 2(ii) Honors degree with a substantial component of Geography, Environmental Science or Computing or related disciplines, although candidates with qualifications in other relevant subjects will be considered on an individual basis.
  • Candidates without the standard academic qualifications will also be considered, based on significant relevant work experience; in such cases, previous experience of GIS will be an advantage, and should be explained in detail on the application form.
