University of Limerick’s Graduate Placement Programme Seeks Placement Opportunities for 2016/17

The University of Limerick’s Cooperative Education Division is currently planning for next year’s placement programme and would like to work with Shannon Chamber member companies in this regard. If you are planning to recruit under the 2016 programme,  simply work through the following steps;

  1. Review the profile of undergraduate programmes by date and duration of placement. This is available at
  2. Indicate the number and profile of student(s) that you wish to recruit by completing and submitting the online ‘Employer Request Form’. This is available at
  3. Ensure that you receive a receipt by email indicating that that the request has been successfully submitted.

From January 2016 onwards, an assigned Placement Officer will forward a selection of CVs that corresponds to your ‘Employer Request Form’. These are retained by the Cooperative Education Division on behalf of each placement candidate and will be forwarded by email for your consideration. The interview and acceptance process is managed by the Placement Officer who will liaise closely with your recruitment team. Some 2,000 students will participate on the programme in the coming academic year. On successful completion, each student is awarded academic credit toward their final degree. Therefore, the programme follows a structured process that is centrally managed by the Cooperative Education & Careers Division.

Full details of the placement programme are available at

Shannon Chamber thanks companies that support this programme which promotes the employability of the University of Limerick’s students and future graduates. We believe that in turn, the programme will support your current and future planning for talent acquisition.
