Welcome from the president

Originally founded in 1845 as "Queen's College Cork", UCC is one of Ireland's oldest institutions of higher education. Over 150 years later, our University is internationally acclaimed as one of the top 2% of research institutions in the world.

Our mission - to advance excellence in teaching, research and the quality of the student experience - makes UCC a contemporary University with a global outlook. This website contains information on all aspects of the University - I hope you find it useful and informative.
