The University of Nottingham has a broad range of research and development in the space domain, with historic strengths in global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), Earth Observation for Human Rights endeavours, and space biology, shaping national and international policy in these areas. The University has also been increasingly utilising CubeSat technology in both academic research and student projects.

There are several modules in the Faculty of Engineering that are space focused or where students can choose to work on space projects, as well as modules applicable to space careers across the STEM and Social Science subjects. Nottingham has a space student society and a space research group.
