Extended study possibilities for Space Studies Programs Alumni
Alumni of both Space Studies Programs, wishing to extend their interdisciplinary knowledge on space, have the possibility to obtain a M.Sc. degree applying for the International Space University Master Program.
This is in particular interesting for holders of bachelor degrees due to the concentrated period of time (some 10 months, if the first module is waived based upon good results in the SSP program).
Not everyone may have the opportunity to do so due to personal constraints. In cooperation with the University of South Australia (UniSA) another possibility is available.
The Graduate Certificate in Space Studies is a postgraduate program offered by UniSA that might be of interest due to the fact that the largest part of the program can be taken from your home.
Basically the program is broken down in two parts. The first part of the program is waived for alumni of an ISU session (SSP or MSS) in an agreement between ISU and UniSA.
This leaves alumni of ISU to have two assignments:
1. A 3 days intensive activity in UniSA, Adelaide (this year scheduled for 15-17 February 2016
2. An individual project on a topic to be agreed between the applicant and a supervisor appointed by UniSA. This project, and the submission of the final report, can be done in distance mode. Project supervisors are selected from our extensive ISU network and from UniSA staff. Supervisors and students work in consultation to complete the project by early June.
A few examples of projects are shown below:
