All students must submit a report on their placement as part of the formal evaluation of the placement. Your CoOp Report should give a sound insight into your CoOp placement, and should show the link between your studies and your placement. An academic member of staff grades your report on a pass/fail basis. View detailed Cooperative Education Report Guidelines here.
The deadline for submitting your report is normally in week 1 of your college semester. Please note that these deadlines apply to all students, regardless of the location of your Coop. (view forthcoming CoOp Report Deadlines).
Your report must be submitted in hardcopy to the Coop office, located at EO 007. You will be issued with a receipt which you should keep in a safe place.
Remember, your report has to be signed by your employer. Late reports will only be accepted with a fine determined as follows:
Late Reports received after the submission date but during that semester will incur a fine of €50.
Late Reports received after the submission date but outside of that semester will incur a fine of €100.
Any incomplete reports will not be accepted and will be liable for the fine after due date.
It's a good idea to keep some record of your work while on placement as this will help you when it comes to writing your report. Keep track of things like:
