  5. Letter of motivation, please explain why you chose to apply to the course of studies Geoinformatics and why you selected the University of Augsburg

  7. If applicable: proof of practical experience with applications of geoinformatics
  8. Proof of English language proficiency at the level of C1 (accredited courses, stays in english speaking countries, language certificates, e.g., Oxford Online Placement Test, IELTS, TOEFL etc.)
  9. Proof of programming proficiency (accredited courses, programming during work experience etc., please name the programming/scripting languages you know to use)

Please note: very good knowledge of English and good knowledge of programming are important prerequisites for attaining the Master degree in Geoinformatics !

We advise you to start your studies of Geoinformatics in the winter semester. It is in principle possible to start in the summer semester, however, in our experience this invariably leads to a longer overall duration of your studies.

Application period: mid of Mai until July 15th

After going through the online-application procedure and uploading individual files, please send a single pdf file named <yourLastName>.pdf that includes ALL your material to: bewerbung <AT>
