Irish Language Schools' Liaison Scheme 2021/22


The aim of this scheme is to show the universities support of Irish-medium post primary schools.  Information is provided about UCC itself, academic life, college social life, along with the opportunities, schemes and courses that are available for Irish speakers in UCC. 

The scheme is also used to encourage students to apply for courses in UCC.

Unfortunately we were not able to visit schools this year due to the pandemic, however some staff members and students have made videos describing their experience of University life.

I hope that you enjoy and benefit from listening to them.
