Student Support

The International Students Office (InSO)   operates as a one-stop-centre to provide students with support and guidance throughout their studies. At Geomatika, we have a well-established network of support staff and a range of services in place to advise and assist students with any problems they may experience relating to their studies, health issues, career and personal issues. The four areas that are handled by the InSO includes:
