As part of the National Institutional Quality Review (CINNTE), the University developed an Institutional Profile to showcase all the good work UCC is doing in aligning to the UCC 2022 Delivering a Connected University strategy and how this good work will be carried forward into UCC's new academic strategy that is currently underway.

The Institutional Profile has now been finalised and will be submitted to QQI within the next week. The Institutional Profile will be available on the QEU website in due course.
