Curriculum

Week 1-2 Orientation & Academic Classes
Week 2-7 Professional Internship placement in Dublin, Monday-Thursday, approx. 32 hours/week
Week 8 Complete Internship and presentation of research paper at UCD

Students are assessed in both of their academic modules. Assessment may include group work, presentations, assignments, exams and project components. Assessment is also included with compulsory attendance at your academic class. Participation is also essential in the assessment criteria. You will receive pre-readings from your lecturers three weeks prior to the beginning of your programme. At the end of the programme the student should have an in-depth knowledge of the area and business in which they are placed.

We would recommend that 3 US credits are awarded for both modules offered in this programme. Each module is worth 5 ECTS. The students’ home institution decides on credits to be awarded. We will be pleased to provide full information to enable institutions to make decisions regarding the transfer of credits. UCD will send an official transcript to the home institution approximately six weeks after the completion of the programme.
