The Southern Space Studies Program (SHSSP) has been running since 2011, provided in partnership by ISU 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. The program is designed to be a catalyst to boost the role of space for countries in the southern hemisphere and those cooperating with them, and to build human capability and capacity.


The program uses the interdisciplinary educational method for which ISU is renowned, and includes core lectures from international and Australian experts, workshops and ‘white paper’ team projects lead by faculty and invited experts. It will take the form of an intensive five-week program, providing the International, Intercultural, and Interdisciplinary ISU experience in a format and schedule suited to the Southern Hemisphere. As in other ISU programs, participants will benefit from the shared experience of an international, interactive working environment with other professionals, graduate researchers and senior undergraduate students. Successful completion of the program can lead to a graduate qualification or credit towards undergraduate programs in Australia and internationally. Program graduates will become part of the professional networking forum of ISU alumni, faculty members and visiting lecturers.

The SHSSP’s interdisciplinary program delivers an expertly designed curriculum suited to the space education needs of professionals seeking additional knowledge of international space systems and services, graduate researchers in all fields seeking a broader understanding of the context of their work, and undergraduate students seeking exposure to the International, Intercultural, and Interdisciplinary aspects of space that are not available in their home institution studies.
