Teaching geoinformatics

FIUGINET offers geoinformatics training to the students of the network. Many of the courses can be attended with the Flexible Study Right (JOO-studies). Additionally, FIUGINET member universities offer web courses. When you find an interesting course, check from the organizing department how to enrol and if there are maximum number of participants or requirements for preceding studies. More information on JOO-studies can be found from JOOPAS web service. You need approval from both your home university and the organizing university to be able to enrol.

Mature students can apply for non-degree study right to enrol geoinformatics courses (get in touch with the contact person or academic and study affairs office of the organizing department). Furthermore, some courses are offered by the Open University.
