Undergraduate Information

This information is intended as a guideline for Non-EU applicants to UCC’s undergraduate programmes. The information provides guidance on country specific minimum academic entry requirements. These are the minimum entry requirements and many programmes may have higher requirements due to a high demand for places. In addition, programmes may have specific subject/interview/portfolio requirements. Please note that satisfying the grade requirement is only one aspect of the application process and does not guarantee admission. In addition to meeting the academic entry requirements, you are also required to present proof of your English language competency, if applicable. Details of recognised tests and scores are available at English Language Requirements.
