In General

Soldiers and MECs mainly gain experience (XP) through completing missions. However, various other sources of experience are possible.

Experience allows soldiers to promote to increased ranks which will increase the number of perks they have and their base stats.

There is no cap to how much experience soldiers can earn on a single mission.

Soldiers that jump to a rank (reward soldiers, starting soldiers, XTP boosts) start with the XP of one rank lower than their current rank.

XCOM starts with 5 soldiers at the LCPL rank and 5 soldiers at the SPEC rank.

Note: SHIVs do not gain XP.

Sources of Psi Experience

After Xenopsionics is researched, soldiers will begin accruing psi XP after each mission (modified by Campaign Length).

Psi XP gained after any mission:

70 Psi XP

This can be doubled if the soldier is wearing a Neuroregulator.

The amount of psi XP a soldier can acquire is capped at the required psi XP for their next psi level (e.g. An Awakened psion can only acquire up to 400 psi XP).

You can see the current Psi XP level and cap in their Barracks profile.
