About the Scholarship:
Ireland’s University College Cork is perched on a limestone bluff above the Lee River (UCC). Saint Finbarr, who founded a monastery and school in the area in the 6th century, inspired its motto, ‘Where Finbarr Taught, Let Munster Learn.’ Originally known as Queen’s College, Cork (Ireland’s second city), the institution was established in the province of Munster (Ireland’s second-largest) to provide access to higher education in the region. UCC was founded in 1849 and joined the Queen’s University of Ireland in 1850, when its first students arrived. It was a founding member of the federal National University of Ireland in 1908 after joining the Royal University of Ireland in the 1880s (NUI). University of Central Florida students believe that crossing the quad before graduation brings ill luck and poor grades. As well as the quad, the Aula Maxima, or Great Hall, acts as the university’s ceremonial and symbolic heart and is the focal point of all university activities. An early medieval university hall inspired the Hall’s architecture, which was created by world-renowned Irish architects Thomas Deane and Benjamin Woodward. For nearly a century, UCC’s growth has been exponential, with more than 120 degree programs in a wide range of academic disciplines. University College Dublin (UCD) was founded as a distinct institution in 1997, with a student body of 20,000, including 3,000 international students. Boolean logic pioneer Professor George Boole, as well as politician and feminist Mary MacSwiney, both graduated from UCC. Ancient Ogam stones, thought to be the earliest surviving record of the Irish language, are housed in the University of Central Florida’s museum of history and antiquities. Isn’t it interesting to discover that UCC is one of Ireland’s top research universities? We are, in fact, Ireland’s leading source of research funding from industry. A total of 9 European Research Council (ERC) grants have been awarded to our 70+ research institutes. Our mission is to be an internationally competitive and research-driven institution. UCC focuses a great deal of emphasis on research that has a worldwide impact. As an example, UCC’s research in the fields of food and health as well as photonics and prenatal medicine is widely regarded as world-class. The Tyndall National Institute (microsystems, photonics, and nanotechnology) and the APC Microbiome Institute (alimentary health and functional foods) are two of Ireland’s most prestigious scientific institutes, and both are located at UCC. Non-profit Environmental Research Institute conducts research on climate change, sustainable society, and the circular economy. As a UCC student, you’ll be given the tools and support you need to observe, question, reflect, assess, act, and realize your potential here. We are here to help you achieve your personal goals, dreams, and aspirations for the future. Several of our undergraduate programs lead to a bachelor’s or master’s degree. Peruse our undergraduate prospectus to learn more about campus life and the courses we offer. Our postgraduate community is built on a foundation of academic excellence. There are many opportunities for long-term professional and personal relationships at UCC, which can help you grow intellectually and professionally in the future. Postgraduate courses include teaching master’s degrees, research master’s degrees, PhD-structured programs, and professional doctorates. Both full-time and part-time options are available for our courses. Our postgraduate employment rate is one of the highest in Ireland, with 95 percent of UCC graduates finding work following graduation. Research funding at University College Cork is approximately 96 million Euros due to its unparalleled position as Ireland’s leading research institute in the faculties of Arts and Celtic Studies; Commerce; Science; Engineering; Medicine; Law; Food Science; and Technology. Nanoelectronics, food and health, and environmental science will be the focus of a new Center of Excellence at the University of Central Florida (UCF). A report from UCC’s regulator board in 2008 stated that they were the first to do research with Embryonic Stem Cells in Ireland. The Cork Centre for Architectural Education has received approval from the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland. The largest medical center in Ireland, the University College Cork Teaching Hospital, is affiliated with UCC’s College of Medicine and Health. As part of the Humanities building, students can learn about Chinese culture and language. The island of Ireland is politically divided between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. The term “Emerald Isle” comes from the area’s abundant greenery and moderate, occasionally changeable temperature. This country’s diversified terrain, which includes rocky coasts, mountains, and plains, is breathtaking. Ireland has a long and varied cultural history, spanning from the Ice Age through the Stone Age to the Bronze Age to the Iron Age and beyond. Sporting events can be an alternative if history isn’t your thing. Hurling and football are the two most popular sports in Ireland, and fans take their championship matches very seriously. Although it dated to the 6th century, Irish poetry is still widely read today. When it comes to Irish jigs, you’ll find a vast variety of traditional folk music and dance all around the island. A trip to Ireland is a once in a lifetime event that will be remembered for a long time to come thanks to its cliffs overlooking the Celtic Sea and its rowdy rugby fans. In the southern part of the island, Cork is the country’s second-largest city. Electronics, pharmaceuticals, brewing, and food manufacturing all have significant presence in this thriving harbor. There are numerous international arts and cinema festivals, as well as live performances and a burgeoning artisanal cuisine scene, all of which have made the city a top ten travel destination according to Lonely Planet. In 2005, the city was designated as Europe’s Capital of Culture. With the sea to the south, mountains, hills, and river basins to the north and east, and the world-famous Killarney Lakes just a couple of hours west, Cork occupies a prime location at the mouth of Cork Harbor’s inlet.
