            Is one of the top universities in Ireland. Has several clubs, societies, countless options for degrees and opportunities for research and further development of knowledge. It is without a doubt a pleasure to study and work at UCC

          • Testimony
            1996-2005, PhD; BA

            I have worked for and with elite universities in three nations and I am always cheered by how well my alma mater compares. Certainly a significant achievement considering the dearth of funding and regard for higher education in Ireland.
