Working With Schools

UCC PLUS+ Outreach programme

The  UCC PLUS+ Schools Outreach Programme has been designed and developed in partnership with our DEIS schools and continuously evolves in response to the needs of students. UCC PLUS+ currently works with 31 linked secondary schools in Cork, Kerry and Waterford (List of Linked Schools).  The programme consists of a variety of activities and initiatives both school and campus-based from 1st year through to Leaving Cert.  The Aim of the Schools Outreach Programme is to:

  • Raise the aspirations of students and parents.
  • Establish connections between students, parents, school and UCC.
  • Introduce students to UCC and the UCC student experience.
  • Enhance students’ academic performance and their ability to compete for university places.
  • Promote the HEAR Scheme as a college entry mechanism.
  • Support students and parents in completing a HEAR application.
