Register of Accrediated Programmes

UCC programmes are subject to external examiner review and are benchmarked to provide assurance that our programmes retain or exceed the standard expected.  Some programmes are subject to further review by professional or regulatory bodies may result in: 

  • Professional body accreditation (Professional associations that represent a profession)
  • Statutory body accreditation (Regulatory bodies that regulate a profession)
  • Recognised for exemptions in subsequent professional exams 
  • Recognised for partial exemptions in subsequent professional exams
  • Recognised for entry to subsequent professional exams

The Professional Associations Research Network report on the professional body accreditation in higher education institutions in Ireland provides an evaluation of the accreditation landscape see: PARN report.

UCC has over 100 programmes that are either fully or partially subject to accreditation by professional or statutory body.
