Students who choose to study abroad in Cork with API for a summer session will study at the University College Cork Summer School in Irish Studies. Through this program UCC endeavors to create a unique learning experience through a fusion of culture, landscape and rigorous history and literature examinations. The School is conducted at the 300 level (upper division) and is suitable for undergraduate students of history and literature, post-graduates, teachers and researchers in Irish Studies and those generally interested in Irish culture. During the summer session students explore the history, literature, and culture of the Irish through the ages.

In 2015, the International Summer School in Irish Studies at University College Cork marks it’s thirty-sixth year. The School introduces students from across the world to the history, literature and culture of the Irish. The School will run for four weeks in the month of July. In the first two weeks students will explore how major turning points in Ireland’s history shaped it’s people’s identity. The second two weeks of the School wil examine how modern writers expressed that unique cultural identity. In lectures, seminars and field trips, students will explore the major themes of the Summer School program.


API students will receive their transcript from the University College Cork National University of Ireland upon completion of their program.
