In University College Cork we believe in creating an environment in which academic excellence can be combined with opportunities for personal development.

We are committed to the intellectual growth, social formation and welfare of our students and recognise the strength that is derived from student diversity. Excellence underpins 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.

UCC acknowledges that while attainment in the Leaving Certificate may be used to recognise academic talent, many students are prevented from performing to the maximum of their academic ability in this examination due to social and cultural factors outside of their control, through disability or through their commitment to the pursuit of excellence in their personal extra-curricular talent or skill.

UCC also acknowledges that some students do not realise their potential until they have commenced their university studies, and will often achieve outstanding academic and personal accomplishments post-entry.

Quercus is the Latin for oak - or Arabic for cork- the cork that is derived from the cork oak in Iberia.  AT UCC we use the symbolism ‘from acorn to mighty oak’ to represent  the growth that  arises from nurturing talent through support, challenge and mentoring both academically and in other areas of talent.

To this end, we are pleased to introduce the Quercus Talented Students’ Programme aimed at supporting and promoting excellence for both prospective undergraduate students and students already registered in UCC in:

Academia

Sport

Creative and performing arts

Active citizenship

Innovation/entrepreneurship
