Orientation

University College Cork is committed to making your transition to our university environment a positive one. Before actually starting lectures, you will be invited to attend Orientation to obtain information about how we do things and how to make the most of your time here. Orientation is designed specifically to enhance the experience of incoming students and encourage you to take advantage of all the university has to offer. The Orientation Programme will address the academic, general, practical and social aspects of campus life. You will learn about the Student Services available to all students, take an in-depth tour of campus, meet with your academic staff and be informed of what will be required in your programme of study, hear about the many Clubs and Societies active on campus, and, finally, have an opportunity to get to know your fellow classmates during the social events sponsored by the Students’ Union.
