Education and training

Space Park Leicester will not just be a 'business park' with a focus on space-related industries. Education and training within this sector is crucial to not just the Park itself but the broader space sector within the UK and further afield.

An important role for any British university is the provision of skilled people to drive the UK economy. The Space Park will contribute to this through traditional undergraduate and postgraduate courses, but also through apprenticeships, higher apprenticeships and continuing professional development opportunities.

At the University of Leicester, we are committed to creating opportunities for our students and junior researchers, broadening and enriching their learning experience. From project work to advanced study, the addition of the Space Park to the University of Leicester portfolio will give our students the opportunity to gain invaluable experience by working with companies using space-enabled data for real-world and commercial applications.

The opportunities created at the Space Park are part of our award-winning employability and skills agenda. At Leicester, we aim to provide students with the skills to equip them for a lifetime. At the Space Park we will partner with the research and development partners helping to open up space for growth – including for our students.

It is also significant that the Space Park will be situated alongside the National Space Centre (NSC). The educational programme of the NSC supports our courses for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as the Government’s agenda to develop high quality graduates in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
