At UKSEDS, we strive to keep members at the heart of our mission; continuously finding new opportunities to prepare students and recent graduates for careers within the space sector.

Why join?

Our members are able to access an exciting range of events and competitions, which can be found in the top menu bar. They can also join our Mentorship programme and members-only Discord community, where they can expand their network and make new friends with a shared interest in space; as well as  volunteer with us, as positions become available.

UKSEDS members are also  recognised by firms, academia, and government alike as being the best and most motivated students in our field. If you’re considering a career in the space sector, then being a part of UKSEDS can help give you access to valuable contacts and opportunities

Our alumni work in space all over the world, including at ESA, Airbus Defence and Space, Thales Alenia Space, the UK Space Agency, the International Space University, SSTL, Reaction Engines, RAL Space, CGI, ABSL Space Products, Telespazio VEGA, and more.

Best of all, membership of UKSEDS is free!

Who can join?

We pride ourselves with being inclusive at UKSEDS, however we do have a number of conditions for membership. To qualify, you must be a student or apprentice, over the age of 18, and either:

  • are studying or working at a UK-based institution; or
  • have done so in the past three years

Membership must be renewed annually to comply with GDPR regulations. Please note that by being a member of a UKSEDS branch, you are not necessarily a member of UKSEDS.

If you’re no longer eligible to register as a member, you could join our Alumni & Friends Association instead!
