The greater metropolitan area of Cork, Ireland's second largest city, has a population of almost 300,000.
Cork has a number of "sister cities" around the world; these include San Francisco, Shanghai, Rennes and Cologne. UCC receives many students from these cities who experience a warm and friendly welcome and a sense of being "home from home".
Cork City is a cosmopolitan modern city with all the advantages of a capital city with none of the disadvantages! It has the cafe, restaurant and nightlife culture of a vibrant European city while its inhabitants can still easily walk down its main street and bump into friends and acquaintances. The city is also the principal commercial and banking centre in the South of Ireland. It is a busy, thriving seaport and home to a large number of modern industries.
As a small city, everything is easily accessible and a full range of amenities, be they recreational, business, shopping or sport, abound in the city itself. Cork City however, does not stand isolated from its county - the largest in the country. Therefore, 'city and 'county' life merge effortlessly together bringing the beauty of County Cork, water sports and ourdoor pursuits right to your doorstep. According to National Geographic, you'll find one of the best walks in Cork!
UCC's main campus is within walking distance of this mass of activity and life. What's more with the beauty of its campus, UCC is considered not only a respected University but also one of the nicest 'gardens' belonging to Cork as a whole.
Cork was also very proud to have been designated 'European Capital of Culture 2005', reflecting the strong tradition of music, art and theatre in the city.
Cork international airport is only 6 kilometres from the University. This allows for constant access to the international destinations and also highlights Cork itself as a globally attractive and exciting location.
