Institutional Review

UCC is scheduled to undergo a National Institutional Quality Review (CINNTE) in Q1 2023, as required by the Qualifications & Quality Assurance Act (Education & Training) (Amendment) Act 2019. This is led by Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) to examine the quality and effectiveness of our provision of education, training, research and related services and occurs every seven years. The Institutional Review Process is undertaken by a panel of independent external national and international reviewers who evaluate the effectiveness and implementation of UCC’s institution-wide internal quality assurance and quality enhancement procedures. The infographic below details the key stages & dates and a further explanation of the timeline is detailed here.
