If you are interested in applying to University College Cork as an undergraduate international student, we advise that you initially determine your status, as either a non-EU applicant or an EU applicant (see below).
Non-EU applications should be sent directly to us at the International Education Office, once you have followed the steps outlined in the application process.
If you are an EU applicant you will need to apply through the main admissions office.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in our undergraduate courses here at University College Cork.
For admission purposes all applicants are categorised into two categories: EU and Non-EU.
It is important that you establish your status before you make an application to UCC as you will retain your status (EU/Non-EU) during your study and you will be unable to change from one category to the other in the middle of a course. Also there are different application procedures for each category.
To determine whether you are an EU applicant or a Non-EU applicant please read our Criteria for Determining the Fee Status of an Applicant (15kB) document
If you meet the criteria outlined in the above document, you qualify as an EU applicant.
This means that you pay EU fees and apply through the Admissions Office. For application information and/or any other queries please contact the Admissions Office at email@example.com. Please specify in your initial correspondence with the Admissions Office that you qualify as an EU applicant.
If you do not meet the criteria outlined in the above document, you qualify as a Non-EU applicant.
This means that you are liable for Non-EU tuition fees and apply through the International Education Office.
