Work Placement

UCC is following Government directive and is closing its campus from 6pm on 12th March until 29th March. The safety and welfare of our students and staff is paramount. UCC Career Services staff will work remotely to the maximum extent possible during this period, in line with the Government advice issued yesterday. On behalf of our team, we appreciate your patience at this time and we thank you for your continued co-operation and support. 

Information on work placement during UCC's closure is available on the official UCC Covid 19 webpage which features a Placement and Studying Abroad FAQ. 


Placement is an important part of your course, as it gives you the chance to get practical work experience relevant to your course before you graduate. Working in an area of industry that interests you will give you an insight into the world of work and will help you make more informed decisions about your career.

Select your College below to find your Placement Manager's contact details and further placement information. Please communicate directly with your Placement Manager for further information. 

Placement is an excellent opportunity for you and will be the first step in your career. Now, it's up to you to make the most of it and make it a success! Good luck with your Placement!
