Visiting Students

My experience in the Department of History of Art as an international student at UCC was by far the best year of my education. I gained a greater perspective of the world and other cultures."

We offer a variety of stimulating modules for students visiting UCC and, because we are a small unit, we are able to offer you particularly focused personal attention during your time here. Visually rich and intellectually challenging, our courses also offer you the opportunity to participate in study trips to such cities as Amsterdam, Berlin, Florence, London, Paris and Rome. Visiting students are welcome to apply for any module from the BA programme in History of Art. While no prior experience of the suject is required to enrol, enthusiasm is essential!
