University College Cork
University College Cork has four colleges: Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences, Business and Law, Medicine and Health and Science, Engineering and Food Science. There are over 18,000 students pursuing undergraduate and postgraduate studies. To cater for the growth in student numbers, which has been particularly strong since the 1960s, a large scale building programme is ongoing. In addition, many older buildings have been refurbished and other buildings acquired for academic purposes. A modern campus has emerged from these developments, pleasantly combining early and modern architecture along a riverside garden setting close to the city centre. The campus radiates a warm and intimate atmosphere which greatly enhances the learning environment.
Cork, second largest city of the state of Ireland, is located on the south coast, 160 miles south west of the capital, Dublin. The greater Cork area has a population in excess of 200,000. The city is a busy seaport and is the home of a large number of industries including electronics, pharmaceuticals, brewing and food processing. The surrounding environment is as varied as it is beautiful. Cork is ideally situated at the head of the inlet of Cork Harbour with the sea just to the south, mountains, hills and river valleys to the north and east and the well-known lakes of Killarney only one hour’s drive to the west.
Cork's history has been influenced by various cultures. There is a good mixture of educational, sporting and cultural interests in the city. Among Cork's cultural offerings are an art gallery with public painting and sculpture galleries, an Opera House, numerous theatres and a city museum. The city has an active social life and is a center each year for International Film, Choral, Folk and Jazz festivals.
