The UCC Works Internship Pathway is a period of unpaid work experience in a UCC Campus organisation or department.
- This organisation or department must be an approved UCC Works internship provider.
- Some organisations and departments are already approved.
- If the organisation or department is not already an approved organisation, they must fill in the Expression of Interest for Internship Providers (37kB) to become an accredited UCC Works internship provider. Once the form is received, the UCC Works Committee will meet and review the application and will contact the organisation to approve or reject their application.
- Register for the Internship Pathway now.
Students participating in the UCC Works Internship Pathway are required to complete a minimum of forty hours placement within the organisation. This is certified by a record of attendance form signed by the internship provider. Students are then required to complete a reflective report and update their CV in order to qualify for the UCC WORKS AWARD.
The Reflective Reports must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org in February 2021. The Ceremony will take place March 2021.
