Geomatics is the discipline that covers the methods for collecting, storing, managing, processing, analysing and delivering spatially referenced (or geographic) information in a digital format. This field is in full boom, at the crossroads of geography and computer science, and includes satellite positioning systems, geographic information systems, satellite remote sensing, etc.
Geometrology is, in a strict sense, the "geometrician's science", i.e. a set of methods and techniques such as topography, topometry but also expertise (on legal or construction-related matters) and land administration (cadastre).
These two disciplines - geomatics and geometrology - are strongly interrelated, hence their being grouped into a single master programme.
Since 1992, the University of Liège has been the only French-speaking university in Belgium to offer programmes in this field. This master is the only one that allows graduates to legally work as land surveyors.
For EU students, 835€ is the maximum fee, you might pay less depending on your financial situation. For Non-EU students, 2,400€ is the average fee, which goes from 835€ up to 4000€; your tuition fee will depend on your nationality; please visit our website for more information
The requirements to access to the master programmes are regulated by articles 51 to 53 of the decree of 31 March 2004 defining higher education, promoting its integration into the European Higher Education Area, and refinancing universities.
The master programmes are open to students who hold one of the following:
The additional requirements are designed to ensure students have sufficient knowledge of the subjects required for the intended studies.When these additional requirements consist in one or several additional courses, they cannot add more than 15 credits in total to the student's course load, considering all other credits counting towards their admission.These courses are included into the curriculum of their master programme.
Master programmes are also open to students who, in order to earn the bachelor in the same curriculum, must still pass no more than 12 credits and are registered for those courses.
Master programmes, possibly subject to additional courses worth no more than 60 credits (when this added course load is over 15 credits, it must be taken as a preparatory year), are open to students who hold one of the following:
knowledge and skills, acquired through personal or professional experience, that can be recognised by the admissions jury. This relevant experience must be equivalent to at least five years of professional activity, not taking into account failed years of higher education. At the conclusion of an evaluation process organised by the academic authorities, the admissions jury judges whether the student's skills and knowledge allow them to successfully pursue the programme.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.

The University was founded in 1817 by William I of the Netherlands, then King of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands, and by his Minister of Education, Anton Reinhard Falck. The foundation of the university was the result of a long intellectual tradition which dates back to the origins of the Bishopric of Liège. Beginning in the 11th century, the influence of the prince-bishops of Liège attracted students and prominent scientists and philosophers, such as Petrarch, to study in its libraries. The reputation of its medieval schools gave the city the reputation as a new Athens. The University is now definitely open to the world and hosts 20,000 students, 4,000 of them being international students!
