The ISU Space Study Program

The Space Study Program (SSP) of the International Space University, Strasbourg, is a month-long professional development course focussing on both technical and non-technical aspects of the space industry—something that is extremely essential in a field as interdisciplinary as space.

Go For Space Studies, You Won't Regret It

That being said, going for space studies IS about rockets, satellites, the Sun, stars, planets, Mars rovers, microgravity and a whole bunch of very exciting stuff. So, if you are enthusiastic about science and technology, and currently considering your next academic move, this article is just for you.
