Students hailed for achievements on placement

UCC’s College of Business and Law hosted its Work Placement Awards ceremony recently to recognise and reward exceptional student performance on placement.

In 2015, over 500 students in the College of Business and Law successfully completed a Work Placement as part of the undergraduate or postgraduate study experience.

According to Professor Ursula Kilkelly, Head, College of Business and Law, work placement is a hugely important part of studying at the College of Business and Law, now made up of two innovative Schools - the Cork University Business School (CUBS) and the School of Law.

“We are committed to offering students opportunities to apply their learning in challenging professional and practice environments. To employers we are committed to supplying highly educated and skilled students that meet your requirements.”

Orla Joyce, Head of Legal at Heineken Ireland; Louise O’Brien-Kenny of Glanbia Ingredients Ireland; and Ross O’Dwyer, co-founder of Pundit Arena spoke on behalf of placement providers from both Schools.

Valuable in how they inform uncertain students’ career choices, placements are integrated formally into programmes in the Business degrees and Law degrees or offered as part of summer placement programmes in Law. Feedback from employers is hugely positive with many hiring their Placement students as graduates.
