UCC Graduate Attributes Programme (GAP)

Our Graduate Attributes have been created to allow each college, school and discipline to adopt them and embed them explicitly into the curriculum, and for each Student Experience Unit to encompass and embed within extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. 

We want our UCC graduates to be recognised as well-rounded, curious, self-aware individuals who continually learn new skills, are open to new ideas, and make things happen. As a UCC student, you belong to a dynamic and diverse community where many, many people wish to support you on your learning journey. Here at UCC, we liken this journey to the growth of an acorn to an oak tree. The “Acorn to Mighty Oak” metaphor symbolises your academic, personal and professional development journey throughout your time at UCC supports you to consider your holistic development, through your formal curriculum and through the many ways that you can grow, develop and become at UCC. 

UCC Proud Ally Student Network

On the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (May 17th), we are excited to launch the UCC Proud Ally campaign and student network. The Proud Ally campaign aims to educate and empower everyone to harness core attributes and values to become effective and proud allies to the LGBTQ+ community.
