For Employers

Work Placement is a three way partnership between the employer, UCC and the student.  Work Placement is an excellent opportunity for placement providers to gain a short term resource to support their work.  Engaging a student to meet your recruitment needs can be very beneficial.  Our students are enthusiastic and focused.  They are ambitious and are excited to bring their academic learning to your organisation.  All placements are supported by a dedicated Work Placement Manager, who is there to administer all elements of the placement process.  Liaising with the Academic Staff in the Department of Government and Politics on research collaboration is also encouraged.  If you wish to learn more about our three dedicated work placement programmes: BSc Government and Political ScienceMSc Government and PoliticsMSc International Public Policy and Diplomacy please click on the PDFs below.  

 Our Work Placement Manager would be delighted to schedule a meeting at any stage to explore placement opportunities with you.  Please contact:
