There are a limited number of places available on the HRC Clinic’s Module Based projects. Accordingly, all students who wish to participate go through a selection process. First, all applicants should use Enrol to register for HU902, after which they will be automatically waitlisted until the selection process is over.
Selection decisions are made on the basis of an applicant's cover letter and interview. The cover letter should be no more than 2 pages and should address:
- The degree programme that you are registered on
- The subjects that you intend to take this year
- Why you want to participate in the Clinic
- A ranked list of your three project preferences (choose from the below)
- Your language skills
- Your undergraduate degree
- Any other relevant experience, or further information, as appropriate
This selection process is necessary to ensure (a) that students are placed on projects matching their interest to the greatest extent possible; and (b) that the Clinic is made up of a representative mix of students, with different backgrounds, levels of experience, and so on.
After consideration of the cover letters, a shortlist of applicants will be invited to a short interview with the Clinic Director. All applicants will be notified of the outcome of the selection process shortly thereafter. Selection is made on the basis of the Clinic’s learning objectives, and takes a number of different factors into account. Participation in the Clinic is not determined on the basis of existing professional experience.
The application process opens during Welcome Week and will close at 9am on 12 October 2020.
Once the process is open, your cover letter should be emailed to the Human Rights Centre Clinic for review by Dr. Patricia Palacios Zuloaga, Clinic Director. The subject matter of the email should read: ‘HRC Clinic Application - *name of applicant*’.
