General entry requirements, second cycle
Successful completion of a basic engineering program or a Bachelor´s degree with a minimum of 180 ECTS in the areas of physics, space physics, astronomy, engineering, electronics, mechatronics, space technology, computer science or equivalent. A minimum of 22.5 ECTS in mathematics at the university level is required. Applicants with earlier studies in Sweden must hold a "Kandidatexamen" in a relevant field or if the applicant is enrolled in European Diploma engineering programmes, or the equivalent, he/she must have completed at least three years of his/her studies.
Applicants must have documented skills in English corresponding to the level of English in Swedish upper secondary education (English B). Proven language proficiency in English, can for example be shown by an international English test as TOEFL or IELTS. Some specified university studies can also be equivalent.

Degree of Master (Two Years)
Students receive Master Diploma certificates from two European universities.
The Course Consortium consists of six European universities, two Third-Country universities and five associated members.
During two years of full time studies the students obtain cross-disciplinary theoretical knowledge and practical skills by using the available space scientific facilities such as satellites, rockets, landers, stratospheric balloons, radars, robots, space and remote sensing instruments.
The Course has a common first year for all students. The first semester takes place at JMUW. The second semester takes place at LTU. During the third semester the students are distributed among the six European universities. During the forth semester the students perform their Master thesis projects at six European universities, two Third-Country universities and associate members.The thesis work is strongly connected to the current research and performs usually in collaboration with the space industry. The Erasmus Mundus scholarships from EACEA are available for EU and non-EU students. The Erasmus mobility scholarships are available during the second year. Additional scholarships are available from the Swedish Institute.
