Study abroad at UCC: 8 reasons why you should choose UCC

When it comes to knowledge, the world truly is without borders. From the times of ancient India where students came from as far as Greece and Syria to study at Nalanda and Taxila, to present day when the world’s leading universities are home to students from all over the globe, universities have always been cultural melting pots. Each student brings their own perspective to the learning process, contributing to the creation of shared knowledge across the world.
