Project outline text:

This application is for the NRF-funded National Astrophysics and Space Science Programme (NASSP) Master’s which includes a course-work and dissertation component. The thesis topic is decided by the programme once the student has already registered and proceeded with the course/research-work component. The selection of students for this national programme therefore does not require a project outline.
