University College Cork (UCC) is in the top 2% of universities worldwide. It is a research-intensive, student-centred, international top-tier university. Since 1845, UCC has been the comprehensive university of the south of Ireland. Today, UCC is a globally-oriented, research-led university. It provides a full range of disciplines, serving regional, national and international students. UCC attracts disproportionately high numbers of top school leavers compared to other universities. It offers programmes in the arts, humanities, social sciences, business, law, engineering, architecture, science, food science, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing and the clinical therapies. UCC is committed to development through interdisciplinary collaboration. UCC has 21,000 students. These include 15,000 in undergraduate programmes, 4,400 in postgraduate study and research, and 2,800 adults in continuing education across undergraduate programmes, postgraduate programmes and short courses. Its student body includes 3,300 international students, representing more than 100 countries worldwide. UCC has educational outreach programmes in over 40 locations nationwide. With a staff of 2,800, the university is one of the largest employers in the region. UCC prioritises research in areas that are significant at the highest international levels. This creates a significant impact and uptake in the community beyond the university. In particular, UCC’s research in food and health, photonics and perinatal medicine is recognised as world leading. Several of Ireland’s top research centres are based in UCC. These include the Tyndall National Institute (microsystems, photonics, and nanotechnology) and the APC Microbiome Institute (alimentary health, functional foods), both recognised as global leaders. The Environmental Research Institute conducts research on climate action, a sustainable society and the circular economy.
