The Academy is free to students. Places (20 per day) will be allocated on a first come, first served basis with a maximum of up to 5 students from any one school.  Early booking is essential through your Guidance Counsellor! A further Law Academy will take place during the mid-term break in February subject to demand.

A "taster day" for Leaving Cert students has been announced by the BSc Business Information Systems degree to take place in UCC on Tuesday 10th May from 9.30am-1pm.  Places are limited and early booking is advisable.  To reserve a place at this event please contact Anne Wallace (  The schedule for the day is currently being finalised but promises to be a very interesting programme and suited to Leaving Certs who are, as yet, unsure of the CAO options. 

Business Information Systems (BIS) is a four-year degree programme that specialises in key business and technology skills, providing students with an excellent springboard for a successful career within IS or business related sectors. BIS students study an interesting mix of business subjects such as Economics, Accounting, Management and Marketing. IT related subjects are also on offer covering topics like programming, web development, networking, systems analysis and database development. In third year, BIS students have the opportunity to work in industry for six months. The BIS Placement Programme allows students to take what they have learnt in lectures and practical sessions and apply it in an organisation. This paid placement means that BIS students have practical business experience before they complete their degree. 

BIS students also enjoy their four years at UCC as members of the BIS Society. Soccer tournaments, formal balls and weekends away are widely anticipated annual events! See more detail on the full student experience or download the brochure to find out more about BIS.

The BComm International Showcase will take place on Tuesday 15th December 2015.  This is a one day taster programme where students have the opportunity to hear about the degree programme and the career opportunities available. In addition, students can also attend a language class to learn a new language for example Italian, Spanish, German or Chinese or they can choose their preferred language which they study in school such as French or Irish.  A series of short business lectures is also provided to give prospective students insights into the content of the degree.

Places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis and must be booked through the Guidance Counsellor in the attending student's school.  Further information is available from Anne Wallace (
