Be inspired by the history, beauty, culture and study opportunities of UCC

University College Cork is a stunning campus that combines a gothic revival style main Quadrangle building with modern student amenities, classroom buildings and laboratories.

There are many unique academic opportunities and course offerings available at Cork from business, economics and science to traditional Irish dance and music, folklore, and literature. Modern languages, law and biological sciences at UCC are featured in the top 100 institutions worldwide by the QS World Rankings 2013. In addition, UCC has been nationally ranked first among Irish universities for engineering (electrical and electronic) and environmental sciences.

You’ll find over 80 societies and clubs to choose from and the indoor sports facility, the Mardyke Arena, has recently undergone a €16 million redevelopment and is now one of the leading indoor sports facilities in Ireland.

I knew that living abroad would probably change me and my perspectives. But I couldn’t begin to imagine, in that daunting moment, that it would actually change my future and my interests, as well as teach me more than any number of years at a U.S. university could begin to. ”
