The space sector is one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK. Employers, however, often highlight a lack of skilled graduates, and students, a lack of opportunities to get experience.

This scheme has been created to give students this crucial experience, and has been designed upon feedback from several academics, space industry professionals, and students.

Some of our 2021/22 Project Participants…

Rebecca Humble, Student, Nottingham Trent University

“My aspiration is to pursue a career in space sector, and this is such an amazing opportunity to be involved in some real space industry research as an undergrad. I am really looking forward to gaining some essential skills and knowledge that will help me pursue a career in the space sector.”

Andrew Bacon, Co-Founder & CTO, Space Forge

“On our end, as with many other advanced technology projects, there are alternative routes to technological challenges. SpaceProjects.uk allows students with a fresh perspective to look down these paths to see if there is gold there.”

Dr. Egbert Edelbroek, Founder & CEO, SpaceBorn United

“It is becoming more challenging to allocate the time to recruitment and selection of students with matching talents and passion. SpaceProjects.uk did an excellent job in recruiting and pre selecting several ambitious and passionate students, resulting in a very good match for our project.”
