Established in 1845, University College Cork (UCC) is now a comprehensive, globally-oriented, research-led university with 21,000 students, including 3,000 international students, ranked in the top 2% of universities world-wide. We have internationally recognised programmes in humanities, business, science, engineering and medicine.
Our researchers work at the leading edge of high-impact academic scholarship, innovation, commercialisation, and industry collaboration. This is demonstrated through our strategic partnership with Teagasc (Ireland’s Agriculture and Food Development Authority), and by the many leading national research centres hosted at UCC. These include the Tyndall Institute (microsystems, photonics, nanotechnology), the APC Microbiome Institute (alimentary health, functional foods), the Beaufort Laboratory (coastal management, wave and marine renewable energy), the Environmental Research Institute, and the Insight Centre for Data Analytics, all of which are recognised global leaders. Students seeking to further their education and careers through excellence in undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes can achieve their goals at UCC.
