AWARDS FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT ASSIGNMENTS

  • 02 May 2017

Calls for submissions to the School of English and International Undergraduate Awards

Registration for the International Undergraduate Awards is now open (see below link). All students who submit essays to the International Undergraduate Awards are eligible to submit essays to the UCC School of English Undergraduate Awards. The rules/requirements for the UCC School of English Undergraduate Awards are the same as those for the International Undergraduate Awards, with the exception that 2nd and 3rd year entrants will be judged separately. There will be one winner for the School of English Undergraduate Awards and 3 to 4 highly recommended entrants in each year.
Seminar essays are particularly suited to the Undergraduate Awards. I would, therefore, encourage those of you who have attained a mark of 70% or over in a seminar essay to submit work to the International Undergraduate Awards (and, of course, to the School of English Undergraduate Awards).

Submission for the International Undergraduate Awards closes on 13 June 2017 though students are encouraged to register in advance of that deadline. Submission for the School of English Undergraduate Awards takes place on 16 June from 1 to 3pm in ORB 1.66 (Dr Heather Laird’s office). Please supply three copies of each essay you are submitting and proof of application to the International Undergraduate Awards.

The School of English at UCC has an additional award, The Patricia Coughlan Award. This award is for outstanding essays in one or more of the following: gender and sexuality, women’s writing, femininities and masculinities in literary and film texts. The Patricia Coughlan Award is open to all students, including HDip and visiting students, who are enrolled on 2nd and 3rd year School of English undergraduate modules. The submission date for this award is also 16 June 2017, from 1 to 3pm in ORB 1.66 (Dr Heather Laird’s office). Please supply three copies of each essay you are submitting.
