The School of Nursing and Midwifery, UCC extends a warm welcome to students coming to study here under the ERASMUS programme. Many of you will be some distance from home and in conjunction with the International Office will do our best to ensure that your stay with us will be academically rewarding and socially enjoyable.
UCC have almost 2400 international students studying at the University during a typical academic year. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures and do much to enhance and enrich life at the University. In addition to students from Europe, there are students from the United States and Canada, from Africa, the Middle East and the Far East.
A number of special orientation programmes have been organised for incoming visiting students. I would like to take this opportunity to urge strongly your attendance at the appropriate orientation programme. It will allow us to provide you with a detailed introduction to the University and student life here, while giving you a little time to look around and familiarise yourself with Cork and with Irish life and culture before starting your studies.
We are confident that your stay with us will be a fruitful one and that you will leave Ireland with fond memories of your time spent in University College Cork.
