For Guidance Counsellors
Refugee and Asylum Seeker Brochure
We are delighted to announce that University College Cork has produced a booklet to help guide prospective students through many paths in higher education in Ireland as a refugee or asylum seeker. It contains information on different education options, how to figure out fees and funding available, where to find entry requirements and how to apply for an undergraduate course.
If you would like to request a copy or multiple copies of this brochure, please submit your request via this Form

School Visits, Virtual Presentations and Online Q&As
As there are so many restrictions in place due to Covid-19 Level 5, most schools are looking for an online presence rather than in-person visits. Therefore, we have recorded a presentation for your students, and you can access it by clicking here.
However, it is still very important to us to have a real-time connection and dialogue with you and your students, which will complement our recording. Our recruitment team members are very happy to participate in live Q&As where we will answer any questions your students have after watching this presentation, especially in relation to course-specific queries. We have our contact details below and please don’t hesitate to contact us to arrange specific course/college/topics live Q&As.
