    Great opportunities

    I enjoyed my time at UCC. I think it’s a great university with many solid options as courses. Having studied Commerce with Chinese I can say that the opportunities in terms of travel and experience in the country of choice “China” are plentiful. UCC, in general, provide good opportunities for students in other courses also such as in the BIS course where the 3rd year placement opportunities are excellent in comparison to other institutes for the same degree. As a place to enjoy the college life so to speak, UCC has a good atmosphere around the campus where there almost always seems to be some sort of buzz going on. At the end of the day college is what you make of it so if you’re open to new experiences and taking all the opportunities available then UCC is a great place to study.

    Brilliant University

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time in UCC. It’s a beautiful campus with a huge variety of different courses, clubs and societies. The facilities there are top class and it’s situated really close to the city centre. I would recommend it to anybody. The lecturers there are excellent and really helpful. The student centre is a bit pricy but other than that it’s a brilliant place to be.

    Excellent University with Much to Offer All Types of Students

    UCC is an excellent university with much to offer both from an academic point of view and a social one. The lecturers come from varied backgrounds and are all experts in their field. There is huge support for students throughout the year and the facilities are constantly improving. UCC has many connections with other high-class universities all over the world and offers study abroad and exchange programs for many students. I traveled to The Netherlands for my year abroad and the process was made infinitely easier by the UCC staff and their advise throughout my year away. Another benefit of attending UCC is the wide range of societies on offer which is constantly expanding. Through societies, you make friends, learn new skills and get the opportunity to experience things you never thought you would. In my time in UCC I founded the Harry Potter Society and it made my UCC experience. UCC offers so much to its students and gives an all-around brilliant college experience.

    A great university experience!

    I have had a great experience in UCC. The lecturers particularly in the department of Gaeilge have been incredibly helpful and accommodating throughout the course. I feel that there is a good atmosphere in the college with plenty of society and clubs events.

  • Great

    There are lots of clubs and society events, but library hours still not accessible enough. On campus dining facilities are poor. Mardyke arena is good but extremely crowded. Aside from that, it is a great university.

  • Very enjoyable

    I had a wonderful four years in UCC and perhaps only fully appreciate it now that I have left. It is such a friendly college, very inviting and accepting. The quality and f education is superb. The college is very near the city which is so convenient. It is small enough to feel homely, but not too small. Sports facilities really are excellent with automatic student membership of the mardyke gym and leisure centre.

    UCC

    I really enjoyed my time at UCC. Excellent student communities available for every and any interest. Lecturers are very accommodating and happy to give you advice and guidance should you need it. Theres a very broad selection of courses & not to mention a beautiful campus located in various stops around the city. As a city for erasmus students its one of the best spots in Ireland with a rich cultural heritage. Make sure you make it to the Jazz Fest in October! 🙂

    My experience

    I loved my time at UCC it gave me my first feel for what a large university is like. I wish I had got more involved in more of the schools activities. Classes are super interesting. The going out culture is much more a week day happening since culturally most Irish students go home on the weekend. Food at the grocery stores are super cheap to buy but they will charge for bags. Class schedules are super different from American ones.

CIT lacks funding but genuinely cares about its students.
Having attended Cork Institute of Technology for the past four years I have found it to be an excellent college in terms of student lecturer interaction and engagement Unlike most View more
