In the final or penultimate year of their degree, students have to complete a lengthy individual project, and space-related topics are rarely available.
We provide the framework for students to do their project remotely with a space organisation, and advertise projects proposed by space organisations to students nationwide on a rolling basis.
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.
The scheme is currently in a pilot phase, and we are accepting project proposals.
This scheme and website is operated by UKSEDS and SUN.
UK Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (UKSEDS) is the UK’s national student space society. For over 30 years they have been supporting students and young professionals across the country by running events, providing resources, and teaching new skills. UKSEDS alumni work throughout the global space sector in government, industry, and academia.
Space Universities Network
The Space Universities Network (SUN) aims to enhance the quality of learning and teaching by providing support and resources to the higher education space science and engineering community. We wish to help create a skilled workforce of graduates who can meet the challenges of future space exploration.
