Careers Links

The National Space Academy operates with a small core management team and as such does not offer work experience either through schemes or individually.  For those interested in space related careers the links here may be useful for finding out more. Links on this page are suggestions for a starting point for researching careers and work experience and their inclusion here does not indicate endorsement by the National Space Academy.
