Student will have the opportunity to enhance their learning experience and increase their cultural awareness by living and studying in another country. Students who select a

In third year, students continue with their two subjects from second year at one of our partner Universities abroad. There is a range of universities to choose from in various countries in Europe, Asia, the USA, Canada and South America.

Students return to UCC for fourth year to finish their degree.

Placement Students spend one full academic year (September to May) as a registered full-time student at a University abroad. They partake fully in all lectures, coursework and assignments. They take examinations at that University and their results will be forwarded to UCC. Career Opportunities Adjusting to life in another country and its university system is a crucial formative experience for anyone. It enhances independence and maturity and demonstrates commitment and adaptability to future employers. Students who spend time in another country also have greater cultural awareness. As with all BA degrees, employers are more interested in academic results and transferrable skills than which particular subjects were studied.

Funding Students studying in Europe receive Erasmus funding during their year abroad while the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences offers a number of International Scholarships to students studying outside of Europe.
