A look back on the Graduate Attributes Programme in 2020

8 Dec 2020
End of year snapshot

Successful outcomes within the Graduate Attributes Programme in 2020 are a testament to a dedicated and talented team around us but with radical and transformative collaboration campus-wide. The successful integration of the initiatives has been bolstered university-wide with more than 30 teams collaborating on projects which will support and equip students and graduates with the necessary attributes, skills and values throughout the entire student life-cycle.

What a year 2020 has been! We have been adjusting to life through a global pandemic, seen devastating wildfires in Australia and the west coast of America, we have watched the election of a new US President, we have been hit with flooding throughout our city and we have seen an unprecedented change to the way we live, along with challenges that the university has never seen before! One thing is for certain, we will always stand together in University College Cork, even while remaining apart.

2020 has seen the university leap with gusto to digital learning and teaching and digital ways of communicating that we never thought possible in January.

Some of those initiatives were never thought possible in January, but with determination and energy and a little foresight we have managed to transform how visitors to UCC will get to fully immerse themselves in our campus before ever arriving! We hope you enjoy our snapshot of what was achieved in 2020.
