University College of Cork

We’re an award-winning institution with a history of independent thinking stretching back over 170 years. UCC is proud to be ranked in the top 2% of universities in the world. Our beautiful university opened its gates to just 115 students in 1849. We now have a student population of over 21,000.

The best memory is just all the good times with the friends I made here and seeing all these beautiful places in Ireland with them.
