QU at UCC: The Ireland Program

Quinnipiac University maintains a very special relationship with University College Cork, one of Ireland's premier research institutions.

Students study at the University College Cork. The university was established in 1845 and today is one of Ireland's most prestigious universities. It is the home campus to more than 20,000 students, including nearly 2,400 international students who attend UCC for a semester or year. Living and learning is with Irish and/or international students. Quinnipiac's on-site coordinator assists students, coordinates special events and organizes Quinnipiac-sponsored cultural trips.

Quinnipiac's Office of Multicultural and Global Education has a direct relationship program at University College Cork (UCC) in Ireland, which gives Quinnipiac students the opportunity to complete University courses required for any major as well as participate in special classes designed to enhance their regular program of study.

The program takes full advantage of the spectacular setting in Cork, where much of traditional Irish culture, language and history has been preserved and often is celebrated in festivals dedicated to storytelling, music, dance and epic poetry.

University College Cork welcomes over 2,000 international students every year from more than 75 countries worldwide. Some come for a year or less as visiting students. UCC has designed a range of programs and services to meet the needs of its international students. Students visit local businesses, theaters and historical or archaeological sites, as well as cultural sites that made Cork City the European Cultural Capital of 2005.

In addition to support services provided by UCC, the Quinnipiac University program package includes:

  • UCC tuition
