The interdisciplinary Master of Space Studies programme is open to students who have already obtained a Master's degree.
The criteria for admission to the programme include the following:
- the candidate has obtained an initial Master's degree for which he/she can motivate the relevance for space studies
- the candidate presents a 2 page essay with a consistent view of the importance of the programme for his/her professional expectations, in view of the candidate's previous education programmes
- the candidate may be invited to an intake interview. Interested candidates are invited to send their CV and a comprehensive motivation letter to MSSapplication@ster.kuleuven.be
- The objective of the selection procedure with respect to the initial Master's degree is to verify the student's chances of success. However, students with an initial Master's that does not have a direct apparent connection with space studies can still apply, and may be accepted depending on the power of conviction of their background and argumentation.
