The Cork program offers students the opportunity to enroll in a range of courses in a variety of disciplines at the University College Cork, one of the oldest universities in Ireland. You may stay for a semester or a full year. Ireland remains a unique country with its own traditions, values, and views of the world. Time in Ireland will challenge you personally, open your eyes to different ways of looking at the current topics in our world, and enable you to experience Irish culture and history.
The University College Cork has an international reputation for its research work, particularly in the areas of fundamental and technological science. We recommend you enroll in Early Start courses, unique to the university. Some of the early start courses offered are Irish Archaeology, History and Modern Ireland, Literature in Ireland, Irish Folklore and Ethnology, Management and Marketing in the European Union, and Music in Ireland- all of which give you insight into Ireland's past and present. Many courses also include field trips which bring alive the course material. Certificate and Diploma opportunities provide additional opportunities for in-depth, multidisciplinary study.
Program fees include tuition, orientation and health insurance.

The city is a busy seaport and the home of a large number of industries including electronics, pharmaceuticals, brewing, and food processing. Named the European Capital of Culture in 2005, the city was praised by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 cities in the world to visit; the city boasts international arts, film, and jazz festivals, lively performing arts and a growing artisanal culinary culture of cafes, restaurants, markets, and boutiques. There is a good mixture of educational, sporting, and cultural interests in the city. The surrounding environment is as varied as it is beautiful. Cork is situated at the head of the inlet of Cork harbor with the sea just to the south; mountains, hills, and river valleys to the north and wast; and the well-known Lakes of Killarney a couple hours to the west.
