About the Scholarship:
University College Cork is located on a limestone hill overlooking the River Lee in Ireland (UCC). Its motto, ‘Where Finbarr Taught, Let Munster Learn,’ relates to Saint Finbarr, whose monastery and school originally stood nearby in the 6th century. The institution, which was formerly known as Queen’s College, Cork, was founded to provide access to higher education in the Irish province of Munster (Ireland’s second city) and was named after Queen Victoria, along with two other Queen’s Colleges in Galway and Belfast. The first students arrived at UCC in 1849, and the university became a component of the Queen’s University of Ireland in 1850. In the 1880s, it became a part of the Royal University of Ireland, and in 1908, it became a founding member of the federal National University of Ireland (NUI). The quad refers to UCC’s beautiful gardens and environs, and superstition maintains that crossing the quad before graduation brings bad luck and exam failure. Along with the quad, the institution is centered on the Aula Maxima – the Great Hall, which serves as the university’s ceremonial and symbolic heart. The design of the Hall was created by renowned Irish architects Thomas Deane and Benjamin Woodward, and was inspired by the major universities of the Middle Ages. Since 1908, UCC has evolved at an exponential rate, now providing 120 degree programs in Humanities, Business, Law, Architecture, Science, Medicine, and other fields. With a student body of 20,000, including 3,000 international students, UCC re-established itself as a separate institution in 1997, with its former name. Professor George Boole, the famed mathematician who founded Boolean logic, as well as the feminist and politician Mary MacSwiney, are both UCC alumni. The ancient Ogam stones, claimed to be the first written source of the Irish language, are among UCC’s various historical collections and antiquities. Did you know that UCC is also one of Ireland’s most prestigious research universities? In fact, when it comes to research money from industrial sources, we are number one in Ireland. We have more than 70 Research Centres and Institutes, and we’ve won nine European Research Council (ERC) funding thus far! As a globally competitive, research-driven institution with a worldwide orientation. UCC places a high priority on research in areas that are important on a global scale. UCC’s research in food and health, photonics, and perinatal medicine, for example, is considered world-leading. UCC is home to several of Ireland’s most prestigious research institutes, including the Tyndall National Institute (microsystems, photonics, and nanotechnology) and the APC Microbiome Institute (alimentary health and functional foods), both of which are internationally renowned. The Environmental Research Institute is a non-profit organization that does research on climate change, a sustainable society, and the circular economy. We will empower and enable you to observe and question, discern and reflect, evaluate and act, increase your potential, and achieve your goals here at UCC! You will have your own personal goals, dreams, and aspirations for the future, and we will be here to assist you in achieving them. Our undergraduate programs are at the bachelor’s honours level, with some offering a master’s degree as well.

UCC is a place where you can build long-lasting professional and personal friendships that can help you grow intellectually and in your future career. We provide taught master’s degrees, master’s by research, structured PhD programs, and professional doctorates as postgraduate courses. Our courses are available in both full-time and part-time formats. We are pleased to boast one of Ireland’s greatest postgraduate employment rates, with 95% of UCC alumni finding work after completing their studies. Because of its unrivaled standing as Ireland’s leading research institute in the colleges of Arts and Celtic Studies, Commerce, Science, Engineering, Medicine, Law, Food Science and Technology, and Law, the University College Cork has a research funding of over 96 million Euros. UCC plans to establish a Center of Excellence to conduct world-class research in the domains of nanoelectronics, food and health, and environmental science, according to the proposed strategy. Indeed, according to reports published by UCC’s regulatory board in 2008, it was claimed that UCC was the first institution in Ireland to perform research with Embryonic Stem Cells. The Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland has approved the Cork Centre for Architectural Education. The University College Cork Teaching Hospital, which is Ireland’s largest medical center, is associated with the College of Medicine and Health at UCC. Students can study Chinese culture and language as part of the Humanities facility.
