Is this course right for me?

This course is suitable for anyone responsible for ensuring that a business is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or for processing personal data in a business or organisation.

You may be:

• A business owner or entrepreneur

• A professional who handles personal data in the course of their daily duties

• A recent graduate

• Someone who is looking for a promotion or to refocus their existing role

How will this course help with my career?

Understanding of GDPR is becoming a prerequisite in many professional roles. People working in IT, admin, marketing, sales, project management, and HR regularly handle personal data and may need to demonstrate their expertise in this area as businesses seek assurances that employees are managing personal data correctly. Employers understand the value of these skills and are keen to hire employees with a relevant qualification.

There are also specialist roles such as Data Protection Officer, Compliance Officer, and Data Privacy Officer.

What is the online learning experience like?

Our online experience is designed to be just as interactive, supportive, and inspiring as the UCD Professional Academy campus experience.

Online courses can be accessed from any computer or laptop with an internet connection.

Live lectures are delivered using Zoom. During these lectures, your teachers will use technology interactively to ensure an engaging learning experience. When appropriate, students will be encouraged to activate their microphones so that they can ask questions and communicate with other students.

What is the student experience like?

Student care is a high priority at UCD Professional Academy, which is why our Student Services team is on hand to support you throughout your time with us. They will respond to any queries you have, help you with any technical issues, and facilitate your learning experience at every point. All students are given access to our Student Portal, where you can see your timetable, access all your study materials, and manage your account.

How is this course assessed?

If you are studying an online course, your assessment will also be submitted online.

This course is assessed through continuous assessment and a written project in the form of a GDPR Compliance Plan & Toolkit developed for your business. You will have two weeks following the end of the course to complete and submit the final assignment. The written project is generally around 3,000 words (that’s about 5 pages of a standard Word document).

How do I get my qualification?

Your UCD Professional Academy qualification will be issued electronically on a secure platform, with a link that you can share with employers and others wishing to verify your credentials. You can also add this qualification to your LinkedIn profile.

This qualification is not on the National Framework of Qualifications as a credit-bearing course. This is not unusual for professional courses of this nature, where the need is for fresh and actionable skills immediately applicable in the workplace.

For full-time (bootcamp) programmes, the balance must be paid in full before course commencement.
