Career development in the curriculum

Based upon best practice in countries such as Australia and in the UK, the Career Development Centre has been actively working in partnership with Schools to integrate credit bearing personal and career development planning into the curriculum.

These modules enable academic Schools to meet certain strategic objectives while also addressing the career and personal development needs of students. Carrying up to 5 credits, modules are presently offered to students in:

  • Psychology (final year undergraduate and students on the H.Dip. programme)
  • Information and Library Studies (second or third year)
