Well done to Etain, Cormac and Aoibheann on this significant achievement!

Professor Stephen Byrne, Deputy President & Registrar of UCC, said: 

“Excellence fortifies everything we do at UCC and the University recognises exceptional students when they join, as well as those who develop their talents while studying here. I would like to congratulate the 36 Quercus College Scholarship recipients and Grace O’Sullivan on becoming Quercus University Academic Scholar for the College of Medicine and Health and commend you all on this remarkable academic achievement.”

Head of the College of Medicine & Health, UCC, Professor Helen Whelton congratulated all the recipients across the six schools within the UCC College of Medicine and Health: 

“Success requires a diverse skillset, meaning that those who come out on top must truly be all-rounders. This entails not only being able to learn and critically appraise material presented to you, but also being a valuable team member, a competent leader and a willing follower, depending on the situation at hand. You have all displayed these abilities in abundance.”
