"The Career Development in Psychology module is a key element of the denominated-entry honours BA programme in Psychology. The module was designed by UCD Careers Network in consultation with the UCD School of Psychology and has been offered over the past 4 years. This module provides students with an opportunity to reflect on their achievements, plan for the future, and develop skills for making the transition to the next stage of their career. This course has been oversubscribed since its inception. Feedback has been uniformly positive, with many students commenting on the strong impact the module has had on their ability to progress successfully into employment or graduate study."
Professor Alan Carr, Head of UCD School of Psychology
"I have worked closely with UCD Careers Network to build an applied focus on Career Development into our Professional Career Development module, a core module on the MSc. Biotechnology and MSc. Biotechnology & Business. The applied teaching that the Career & Skills Consultant has readily and expertly developed with us is an invaluable addition to our curriculum and will be of great value to our Masters students who are demanding an appropriate level of preparation as they face into the employment market. It has already been a very dynamic and valuable relationship with the Careers Network and one which we will be very keen to sustain into the future."
Dr David O’Connell, Programme Director, UCD School of Biomolecular and Biomedical Science
"Collaboration with the Careers Network has provided very significant opportunities for undergraduate Archaeology students. A seminar series “Archaeology and Employability” run by staff from the Careers Network and the School of Archaeology has given students the chance to explore the relationship between their degree and employment possibilities both in Archaeology and within other sectors. Experience of collaboration with the Careers Network is reflected in discussions of School strategy, curriculum development and module enhancement."
