The Masters course is open to students of all nationalities and is jointly offered by a Consortium of 4 Universities:

with the participation of several associated partners, including public research institutions, national Space Agencies, small and medium enterprises and space industries that contribute actively to the programme.

The programme has a duration of 2 years (120 ECTS credits) and is entirely taught in English.

MASS will give students an excellent education in the field of Astrophysics and Space Science. It will expose them to the theoretical aspects of modern astrophysics, to the knowledge/use of observational facilities and/or to the data reduction and science exploitation of big data sets coming from current/forthcoming ground-based or space-borne experiments. The goal of the programme is to provide students with knowledge and skills tuned to continue their career in PhD programmes, but also desirable to the private sector.

We invite applications from top-ranked students of any nationality that either hold or are expected to obtain by 31st May 2022 (Warning: this limiting date has been extended to 6th June, 2022) a Bachelor’s Degree (or a recognized equivalent Degree that certifies a period of studies of at least 3 years, corresponding to 180 credits in the European Credit Transfer System) in Astronomy, Astrophysics, Physics, Mathematics, Computing Science, Space Engineering, or closely related fields. A certified good knowledge of the English language is required.

Students selected for participation will carry out their studies in at least 2 and up to 4 of the MASS consortium universities and will be finally awarded a multiple Master Degree, complemented with a Diploma Supplement. The degree will allow them access to PhD programmes.

A number of full scholarships are available for students of any nationality. These are funded by the European Commission following the Erasmus+ scholarship scheme for Erasmus Mundus Joint Master courses.

The selection of students is primarily based on excellence.
