After finishing your undergraduate studies, you should consider taking a master's degree. This higher level of education has an increased priority in careers and specialized learning. It is an excellent opportunity to help you kickstart your career.

What is an MSc in Space Sciences? This is a multidiscipline field that incorporates nearly all areas of outer space. This includes exploration of the origin of the universe, space travel technologies, astrophysics, planetology, satellite communication, and others. It is important to note that the one area this does not include is actually travelling to space, but astronauts often begin in this field because a very strong understanding of all these topics is vital before more rigorous training is started.

Students working in space sciences enjoy the benefit of having many different branches of study at their fingertips. You will be able to choose from many different applications of your degree. Helping to bring the stars a little closer and furthering our understanding of the universe is also very fulfilling work. 

Space sciences is a very intensive focus, so tuition for most programs tend to run relatively higher. That said, there still is a lot of variation depending on university, country, online or offline status, program, and length of study, so you should find a school that fits your needs.

It is an exciting time to work in the field of space travel and studies. It is still possible to find work with a government organization, but for the first time, there are independent companies that are starting to explore space travel as well. Possible careers include spacecraft engineering or design, research, education, consultation, and aerospace or aeronautical engineering. It is usually easiest to live in a country with a strong space program, but that restriction is quickly fading.

This is a highly multi-disciplinary degree which covers broad areas of science, engineering, and statistics, as related to space science and technology. Our MSc programme has a strong focus on Chinese Space Science. Our MSc programme is composed of 60 credits of courses. Students must enrol in 6 courses (36 credits) of “core” (compulsory) courses, offered mainly in the first semester. Students may then choose 3 “elective” courses out of a broad range of courses. In addition, students must carry out a “capstone project” by enrolling in the 6-credit course SPSC7031. Students are encouraged to approach faculty members in their areas of interest to choose a project. The final project will typically be undertaken over the course of the second semester. The curriculum of the MSc in Space Science is the same for both full-time and part-time modes of study. -

(Program jointly offered by Ghent University, KU Leuven) Human activities in space play an ever-increasing role in our society. Space missions have evolved from merely showcasing events that explore new technologies in new environments to utilitarian operations that serve various purposes such as telecommunications around the globe, weather prediction or advanced research in zero gravity. In order to illustrate this, the European Space Agency (ESA) has estimated that only 5% of the space-related industry is involved with the manufacture and launch of satellites! -
