Program Description:
University CollegeCork, Ireland Cork
Cork, Ireland
Built around a beautiful stone faced quadrangle, University College Cork first opened its doors to students on the 7th of November, 1849. The modern campus of UCC pleasantly combines early and modern architecture along a riverside garden setting close to the city center. The campus radiates a warm and intimate atmosphere which greatly enhances the learning environment.
 
Cork, the second largest city of the state of Ireland, is located on the Southern coast, 260 kilometers of the capital, Dublin. The city is a busy seaport and the home of a large number of industries including electronics, pharmaceuticals, brewing, and food processing.
 
The surrounding environment is as varied as it is beautiful. Cork is ideally situated at the head of the nlet of Cork harbor with sea to the South; mountains, hills, and rivers to the North and East; and the breathtaking lakes of Killarney only one and a half hours to the West.
 
There is a good mixture of educational, sporting, and cultural interests in the city. Among Cork’s many cultural offerings are an art school, public painting and sculpture galleries, an opera house, two theaters, and a city museum. The city has a rich social life and is the center for the International Film, Choral, and Jazz Festivals.
 
Academic System
In order to introduce you to life at University College Cork and to help you to settle in, the University runs a series of orientation programs designed to tell you about life on campus. In addition, incoming visiting students have the opportunity to attend an informal reception, where you can meet other students and academic and administrative staff responsible for your welfare while here.

Assessment is usually by examination and by work submitted during the academic year. Formal examinations are held in the summer with repeat examinations in the Autumn. Departmental examinations and assessments take place at various times of the year. In the case of visiting students, assessment arrangements will vary case by case. As a general rule, the approach is to integrate the visiting student to the maximum extent possible into the procedures normally observed by the Irish student. Visiting students must therefore sit the normal end of year examinations, as is the case for Irish students.
 
Accommodations and Other Arrangements
Housing options include apartment style complexes which can be pre-booked or sharing private housing with other students.
