UCC was established in 1845 as one of three Queen’s Colleges at Cork, Galway and Belfast.  The site chosen for the college is particularly appropriate given its connection with the patron saint of Cork, St Finbarr.  It is believed his monastery and school stood on the bank of the river Lee, which runs through the lower grounds of the university.  The University’s motto is  ‘Where Finbarr Taught, let Munster Learn.’ If you are interested in applying to University College Cork as a postgraduate international student, we advise that you initially determine your status, as either a non-EU applicant or an EU applicant.  You can do this by clicking on the following link: Am I an EU or a Non-EU Student?.

To apply as a Non-EU applicant please follow the following links:
