Student Welfare

In the School of Medicine, we recognise that, at times, students need additional support, whether working through personal or academic issues, to ensure that all students reach their full potential. It is important that you have access to help, including services to support your study and learning, medical services, and counsellors. UCC offers a range of services aimed at helping you to make the most of student life, many of them conveniently located on campus.
