Parent & Guardian Information Session 2023

Listen back here

Listen back to our March 2023 session here!

Our information session was specifically for parents, guardians, and supporters providing insight into study and life at University College Cork. We highlighted the various campus support services as well as the academic programmes on offer.

The evening included talks on finance & grants, careers for graduates, and supporting students transitioning to Higher Education.  We also introduced UCC's Nurturing Bright Futures programme; Nurturing Bright Futures aims to empower your family member with the skills needed to make decisions about their future and succeed in Higher Education.
