Hi Tim

Thank you for the Prompt response I didnt think thus far but in future I
will be aware what I am getting myself into. I am going to be doing
B.Science Honours in GIS at Nelson Mandela Metropolotan University. I will
get a quote from Nmmu during the week as for now I know that registration
for fulltime is R6200. I am not sure of the fees since I am from another

The registration for honours students starts as early as the 18th January.I
will send full details when I get the full course fees tomorrow.

Thank you


Athenkosi Ntshate
