University of Nottingham


The Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI) offers a number of individual short courses that are delivered as modules arranged as intensive one-week teaching blocks. They consist of lectures, seminars and practical exercises. We also offer 1-day courses which can be delivered as condensed versions of the weekly modules or individual components. We also offer courses tailored to specific requirements delivered either on our own premises at the University of Nottingham or at an appropriate venue offsite.

For a detailed description of each course, the timetable for 2013/14, and course fees, please visit the NGI web site.
