The Southern Space Studies Program (SHSSP) has been running since 2011, provided in partnership by the International Space University and the University of South Australia.
The program is designed with a particular eye to the southern hemisphere space environment and is built around the themes of space exploration, space policy and space services, while giving a well-rounded exposure to the principles and concepts involved in space science, space systems engineering and technology, space business, project leadership and space legal and regulatory issues.
It is open to professionals in the industry, government and defence services, graduate researchers and undergraduate students having completed at least two years of university studies.
Graduates can opt to continue their studies with the University of South Australia’s Graduate Certificate of Space Studies. SHSSP comprises the first half of this qualification.
