For candidates with a specific request for up-to-date education in (applications of) geo-information science and earth observation, ITC offers a number of short courses leading to a certificate.
Furthermore, those interested in the subject matter of one of ITC’s degree or diploma courses but not in the position to sign up for the entire duration of the course can enrol for the various Certificate courses that suit their needs. Entry requirements vary, and prospective candidates are requested to pay strict attention to the prerequisites concerning background in remote sensing and GIS, scientific discipline, and level of English.
Certificate courses offer a wide choice of subjects and disciplines taught at ITC. Level and orientation vary per course. Applicants are advised to consider their learning objectives carefully and match these with the course content.
In case of doubt, potential applicants are advised to contact ITC (firstname.lastname@example.org). Enquiries concerning course content are passed on to the scientific staff member responsible.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive a Certificate which will include the name of the course.
Along with your Certificate you will receive a Course Record providing all the subjects studied as part of the course. It states for each module: the module code, number, subject, ECTS credits, exam date, location and the mark awarded.
If the certificate course is part of the Postgraduate or Master’s programme at ITC and if you decide to take the full programme at ITC, you will be exempted from the module(s) you followed successfully as a certificate course.
Certificate courses vary in duration, learning objectives, educational methods and structure.
You can also create your own individual study programme by selecting one or more relevant three-week modules (5 credits) or a block of connected modules from the degree and diploma programmes.
