HEAR Scheme

The UCC PLUS+ Programme Provides Links to Under-represented School-leavers and Supports Students Entering UCC via the HEAR Scheme

 

Education plays a crucial role in the social, intellectual, cultural, economic and political life ofIreland. Third level education is seen as increasingly necessary for a good quality of life and broader and more exciting career opportunities. Many groups and communities, however, are still very underrepresented at third level and in the university sector in particular. 

Working with secondary schools, the UCC PLUS+ Programme (formerly Access Programme) seeks to target students and to provide motivational and educational assistance to them throughout their secondary schooling to enhance their ability to compete for third level places. Currently there are a number of schools and colleges of further education linked to the Programme for this purpose.

Having achieved entry to the University UCC PLUS+ enables students to participate fully in student life and reach their full potential.

We look forward to meeting you.   
From all the UCC PLUS+ team;

Olive Byrne, Martin Flynn, Sheila McGovern, Maeve Bent, Evan Healy, Maeve Minihane and Allison Carroll.
