About University College Cork

The National University of Ireland campus, University College Cork (UCC), is one of Ireland's oldest and leading teaching and research universities. Founded in the 1840's this beautiful campus reflects its historical heritage in the impressive architecture of the central, campus quad. UCC has eight Faculties ranging from Arts to Science to Law and Medicine. Courses in Irish culture, archaeology, history, and politics offer students an opportunity to explore Ireland's past and its future as part of the European and world communities. UCC boasts a world-renowned Department of Music, which has close ties to Wheaton's Music Department faculty.

Cork (pop. 200,000) is the second largest city in Ireland on the southern coast, resulting in a more temperate climate. With the River Lee as a prominent part of the cityscape, Cork is known as a city of bridges. During the Irish struggle for independence, Cork was an important base for nationalist politics and resistance. Contemporary Cork is influenced by its student population, with lively arts, cultural, social, and sports scenes.
