For Students


Work Placement is a three way partnership between the employer, UCC and the student.  Work Placement is an important part of our academic programmes here in the Department of Government and Politics.  A work placement gives students the chance to gain relevant work experience and will help students make informed decisions about their career path. Work placements are supported by a dedicated Work Placement Manager, who is there to administer all elements of the placement process.  Our three dedicated work placement programmes in the Department are: BSc Government and Political ScienceMSc Government and PoliticsMSc International Public Policy and Diplomacy
