A look back on our GAP successes in 2019

10 Jan 2020

Review of the year 2019. This review illustrates the enthusiasm with which our Graduate Attributes have been embraced and, more importantly, the opportunities that have been seized by staff and students in UCC to achieve remarkable things in 2019.


Our Annual Review can be viewed Graduate Attributes Programme: Review of 2019

Our Graduate Attributes Programme, which is funded by the Higher Education Authority, is advancing the development of students’ academic, specialist and technical competencies, equipping them with transferable skills that can be applied in different environments. Our initiatives are integrating with the academic curriculum, taking a holistic educational approach to develop character, professionalism and the capacity for critical and creative thought. UCC graduates will be recognised as well-rounded, curious, self-aware, individuals who continually learn new skills, are open to new ideas, and make things happen.

As well as celebrating the excellent work that has taken place, its contents will serve as an inspiration for ongoing engagement with the Graduate Attributes throughout the cycle of UCC's Academic Strategy and beyond.
