Ahead of the CAO Change of Mind deadline (1 July), UCC is hosting a live online Q&A on Wednesday 24 June, from 3-4.30pm in partnership with the Irish Examiner and Pubble.

A panel of UCC experts will be on hand to answer any questions students may have about changing their mind through the CAO, UCC's programmes or life at UCC in general.

Students can submit their questions during the session at http://www.ucc.ie/caolive, or pre-register to receive a reminder text.

Questions can also be submitted in the meantime using UCC’s Ask Anytime service at the above link, or by emailing admissions@ucc.ie

The panel of UCC experts will include: 

  • Loretta Brady, College of Arts, Celtic Studies & Social Sciences
  • Danielle Byrne, Admissions Office
  • Mark Stanton, UCC Students' Union President
  • Sandra O'Herlihy, Admissions Office
  • Patricia O'Shaughnessy, College of Science, Engineering & Food Science
