University College Cork (Coláiste na hOllscoile Corcaigh) is an award-winning institution with a history of independent thinking stretching back over 170 years. UCC is proud to be ranked in the top 2% of universities in the world, and was just recognized as 8th in the world in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2021, which assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our beautiful university opened its gates to just 115 students in 1849, and we now have a student population of over 22,500.
Visiting students can take modules across the University's four Colleges - the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences, College of Business and Law, College of Medicine and Health, and College of Science, Engineering and Food Science. UCC's International Office is devoted to supporting international students and making sure their stay at UCC is as successful as possible, with a variety of events each semester including a two-week welcome program to help students get to know Cork.See All 6 Photos
