Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

12-20 hours per semester

Students who choose to study abroad in Cork at the University College Cork – National University of Ireland (UCC) choose from a range of undergraduate courses (called modules) offered in the Faculties of Arts, Celtic Studies, Commerce, Engineering, Food Science and Technology, Law (full-year students only) and Science. Courses are arranged in the seminar and lecture style, and grades are based predominantly on work submitted during the semester and by final exam. In order to integrate into the Irish system as fully as possible, spring semester and academic year students complete standard end-of-the-year exams. Other exam arrangements are made for fall semester students for most courses. Math and engineering courses are only available to students studying for the spring semester or the full academic year, as exams for these courses are only held at the end of May. Law courses are also only open to students studying for the full academic year.

Extra fees apply for students who enroll in all science or engineering courses.
SPECIALTY PROGRAMS

In addition to the normal class offerings at UCC, API students may participate in one of several specialty programs, such as the Early Start Programs, Internship Programs and Certificate/Diploma Programs. As space in these programs is limited, it is recommended that students apply early if they are interested in one of these options.

TRANSCRIPTS

Students receive their transcript from the University College Cork – National University of Ireland.
