Current UCC PLUS Students

Support from ACCESS UCC PLUS Programme

Once admitted to a degree programme in UCC, HEAR/UCC PLUS Programme students are eligible to receive many supports throughout their time in University.

From August 30th 2021 The UCC PLUS+ Programme Team are both back on campus and working from home, to ensure students continue to have access to our supports.  Teaching and assessment will mainly be on-campus lectures but the capacity of some lecture theatres may require some online learning, as determined by the latest Government advice on social distancing measures.
