Scholarships are available for all programmes with the exception of Creative Writing.
A recent graduate writes that a highlight of her MA programme was "the diversity of the course’s focus and its awareness that its emerging English graduates held a range of aspirations, ranging from PhD scholarship, to journalism, marketing and publishing. Unsure about what career to pursue upon entering an MA, and acutely aware of an economic climate that portrayed employability as a ‘holy grail’ prospect, it was UCC’s persistent focus on digital e-learning, interconnected e-journals, and archival projects that convinced me to follow a Master’s degree at University College Cork."
