UNIGIS MSc 2016 successfully launched in Salzburg

Personal interaction with fellow students and the UNIGIS teaching team was one of the main foci of the 2-day introductory workshop held in Salzburg. This was complemented with an overview of information on study administration and curriculum content, providing a detailed insight into the UNIGIS distance learning framework. 

The UNIGIS MSc study day's on 18th and 19th February were attended by 36 new students from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The very diverse educational and professional backgrounds of UNIGIS students contribute to making personal get-togethers in Salzburg not only informative, but also contribute to an enriching and exciting start-up event.

The UNIGIS MSc team is wishing our new candidates all the best for their upcoming coursework, and are looking forward to seeing everyone soon again at one or another future event!
