UCC and KU have many similarities. The college is adaptable, though the classes (or "modules") are structured differently and the grading (or "marking") takes much longer.

As a person who has been involved with music, politics, and communication studies at KU, my program provided a wide range of classes that catered to all of my interests. I really enjoyed my Global Politics class as well as my Modern Music in Ireland class. Both of these classes really opened my eyes to the different culture and values that Ireland holds. In my Global Politics class I experienced what it was like to study politics from a different countries point of view. It was also very interesting to see the way the Irish and other countries view the United States. My Modern Music class introduced me to the music world outside of traditional Irish music.

There are many different ways to learn. Before I went to UCC I imagined every college experience would be vaguely the same. After arriving at the University College Cork, I realized that schooling is different and it can be difficult to adjust. Don't be afraid to ask your classmates questions and try to be flexible.
