Masters in Astrophysics and Space Science

You are here

The Master’s programme is hosted by all 3 NASSP nodes: UCT, UKZN, and NWU. Students will spend the first semester at their chosen nodes completing the taught component of the Master’s degree. This consists of 5 NASSP modules taught by distinguished South African researchers from NASSP partner institutions.

Students will choose their Master’s dissertation topic from a range of projects offered by scientists at NASSP partner institutions. Students may move from a NASSP node to their supervisor’s institution once they have finished the coursework component. Students may also be co-supervised by scientists from the NRF National Facilities such as the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) and South African Radio Astronomy Observatory (SARAO).
