Description of University College Cork

University College Cork A tradition of independent thinking University College Cork is one of Ireland’s most prestigious universities. It boasts a vibrant, modern campus with an unsurpassed student experience in Ireland. A learning community where the student is at the heart of everything and the special relationship between student and lecturer is primary to our unique ethos.The campus is located a mere ten minutes walk from the heart of Cork city, a former European Capital of Culture. Cork is listed as a top ten location in the Lonely Planet guide which states it “has always had an unshakeable self-confidence and innate sense of pride”, a description which is equally applicable to the University itself.UCC’s uniqueness is comprised of several threads, which when woven together create the fabric of an exceptional university experience. Those elements include its cosmopolitan character; diversity of student backgrounds; successful access programs; excellence in teaching; high academic standards; flexibility in the delivery of programs; high completion rates and levels of graduate employment; excellent sporting facilities and a broad diversity of societies and social activities resulting in over two thousand student led events per term.The campus possesses a range of unique cultural and historical attractions, where preservation and progress coexist; the University’s original 1845 buildings designed by Sir Thomas Deane and Benjamin Woodworth are considered to be of international architectural significance. The Hibero-Romanesque glory of the Honan Chapel (1916), and the Glucksman Gallery(2004,) a visionary purpose built modern art exhibition centre, are located within a two minute stroll. Our setting in beautiful grounds which include the historic Main Quadrangle, impressive gardens and riverside walks all provide a rich, varied, and inspiring experience to student and visitor alike.There are c.20,700 full-time students: c.14,000 of these follow undergraduate programmes, while c.4,300 are engaged in postgraduate study and research.
