Students

The Glucksman provides a welcoming cultural space for future, current and graduate students of UCC to enjoy and learn from art.

We want to be part of the reason why you will choose, value, and retain an active connection to the university.  

Internships  

We offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate internship opportunities in the Glucksman and have hosted students from all four colleges as part of their learning experience at UCC. Some of our interns have chosen to pursue careers in the cultural sphere and we are immensely proud to see them flourish in the artworld. Others have used the opportunity to develop an understanding of creative, educational, retail and marketing activities in the public facing context of the museum.   

Undergraduate internships are offered through the UCC Works programme

Postgraduate internships are offered for specific collection and curatorial projects, as well as in partnership with UCC's MA in Museum Studies and CIT Crawford College of Art and Design. Please contact education@glucksman.org for further information on current internship opportunities.  

Masterclasses  

The Glucksman provides masterclasses in areas of contemporary art practice, as well as on themes explored in the exhibition programme in partnership with academic departments at University College Cork.   

Research   

Students are welcome to do research on the UCC Art Collection and the Glucksman's exhibition programme in our Curatorial Research Lab. Research slots must be booked and confirmed in advance by emailing lab@glucksman.org. The Curatorial Research Lab is located in the East Lodge, the first building on your left when you enter through the ceremonial gates on Western Road.

Using footage of Jamaican dancehall fans practicing their moves on YouTube, the artist transforms the figures into an animation of delicate watercolour dancers, set against a white background.
