Welcome to the Web site for Italian at UCC!
Italian at UCC is now a part of the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures. The School LLC will give us the opportunity to develop further inter-disciplinary links in teaching and research, but will also allow us to retain our identity as a distinct and dynamic unit with a reputation for putting students and their learning experience at the centre of all its activities, including research-led teaching and postgraduate supervision and training. This site will remain your first stop for information about what studying Italian at UCC involves, the opportunities for graduate studies in Italian, and our evening recreational courses in Italian (but also Arabic and Polish!), all of which you will find in the menu to the left.
I will limit myself here to answering the most frequently asked questions about Italian at UCC: students with no prior knowledge of Italian are welcome, as are those who have already studied the language formally or informally, and students, both beginners and non-beginners, can achieve the highest standards in their degree examinations. All students receive intensive, small-group tuition in written and spoken Italian, and take courses on Italian culture and society according to their programme of studies.
You might want to take a look at what some of Our Graduates have been doing, keep an eye on the News and Events for information on research and other activities, and check out Employment Opportunities with Italian. General information, including details of programmes, application procedures, fees for first time EU undergraduate students (approx. €2,150 for entry in 2011), and student life in Cork can be found at Study at UCC.
