ATAR Clearly-In Rank

Clearly-in Rank

The Clearly-in Rank is the lowest score at which students were granted entry in the first offer round in 2015.

The Clearly-in rank should be used as a guide for entry. Note: entry to some courses requires a combination of criteria (ie. folio, interview, GMAT) not just ATAR alone.

This course, which is normally undertaken in part-time mode and articulates from the GradCertGIS, is designed for graduates wishing to obtain complementary skills and knowledge of spatial sciences, particularly in the fields of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing.

The objective of the GradDipSpSc is to equip students with:

- specialist theoretical knowledge of the spatial sciences, particularly in the fields of GIS and Remote Sensing 
- advanced technical skills, particularly in the fields of GIS and Remote Sensing 
- cognitive skills to review, analyse, consolidate and synthesise knowledge and to identify potential solutions to spatial data acquisition, management, analysis and visualisation problems 
- communication skills to present clear and coherent exposition of knowledge and ideas to a variety of audiences.
