UCC social media was recently nominated at the inaugural Cork Digital Marketing Awards

Earlier this year UCC was declared a top university by Tripadvisor and Flipkey. It also won a Social Media Award for best social media engagement in June 2014, having also recently been nominated at the Eircom Spider Awards (2013). 

UCC was also recently praised by The University Times, the student newspaper of Trinity College Dublin.
