Engage in Combat

Killing enemeis give the player XP. So you can engage in combat to farm XP. The best way to gain XP from the combat is by boarding ships. Find ships and engage in combat with them. But do not destroy the ships. Once you take out the engine, you will be able to board the ship. Board the ship and kill the enemies inside the ship. That way, you will get a lot more XP than just blowing up the ship. And once you are done with the ship, you can also sell it for some money.

Explore the Universe

Exploration is a key part of Starfield. So the game gives XP each time you visit a new place. So you can explore different planets to get a chunk of XP. And if you find a Gas giant on your travel, you can scan it from orbit since these planets are just gas. Scanning gas giants from orbit will also give you a chuck of XP.
