# The Cooperative Education programme (or undergraduate placement) at the University of Limerick facilitates the employability development of UL students and is an integral component of both their academic programme and their student experience.

My name is Imogen Cotter, and I am an Irish cyclist, living and racing in Belgium. I have been cycling since 2017 and I'm very lucky to be doing what I love doing as my job! I am riding with a team in Belgium called Keukens Redant, but when I'm at home in Ireland, I love to head out in the Burren and explore the Wild Atlantic Way on two wheels. I'm delighted to be an ambassador for Clare's Wish in 2021 and hope I can help to raise awareness of the incredible work this charity is doing.
