Program OverviewIE3_Cork

The IE3 program at University College Cork (UCC) in Ireland facilitates undergraduate student exchange between UCC students and PSU students. The program allows students to enroll in undergraduate and graduate courses in many fields, and is suitable for students from most majors. UCC operates on a semester system, and students may enroll for either one semester or a full year of study. The UCC campus is a ten-minute walk from the city center, and has a number of historic buildings. Home to 18,000 students, University College Cork campus developed from its establishment in 1845 into one of Ireland's major universities.

Ireland is a country steeped in history and outstanding natural beauty. From friendly, bustling cities and small towns, to the timeless green tranquility of the Irish countryside, students will find a warm welcome in the Emerald Isle. Cork City is situated in the Southwestern corner of Ireland, with the city center built on an island in the River Lee. Cork's roots go back to the 6th century AD, and it has been an important player in Irish history throughout the ages. Cork has a friendly rivalry with Dublin as to which city is the "capital" for culture, art and culinary excellence. Cork, and its neighboring port of Cobh (pronounced "Cove") were the point of departure for vast numbers of emigrants from Ireland to America in the 19th century. 


Participants are enrolled as regular Irish students, taking classes with Irish and other international students. There is a range of teaching methods at UCC, often depending upon the discipline of study. The University College Cork (UCC) program is ideal for students in diverse majors as students may enroll in a wide variety of regular university classes in majors including sciences and engineering, social sciences, Celtic studies, humanities and languages.

Early Start: Students can attend a late summer program of intensive study before the Autumn semester, focused on an aspect of Ireland’s archaeology, history or culture. These add additional credits to the semester.
