Established in 1994, UCC Language Centre is part of University College Cork, which is ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide and is recognised as the #1 Institution for Student Experience in Ireland (Education Awards 2021). As Ireland’s original ‘Green Flag’ university, we are situated in 42 acres of wooded riverside grounds, yet we are only a 15 minute walk from the vibrant city centre. Our students benefit from access to a wide range of university facilities and services, including state-of-the-art sports amenities, 150+ sports and social clubs, onsite cafes and social spaces, the library, IT centres, art gallery, career service and student health and wellbeing support. There are lots of opportunities to practise English outside the classroom on campus and a dedicated student engagement officer is on hand to help our students connect with other members of the university community. We pride ourselves on being welcoming and inclusive, and our international teaching team works hard to create an innovative curriculum designed to help students progress quickly while also having fun and linking to other learning opportunities in the university.
