    UNIVERSITY COLLEGE CORK: A LEARNING AND LIVING HUB

    UCC is a very renowned university in Ireland.I wanted to take a further step ahead in my career. Therefore, instead of going to the USA or any other country, I went ahead with Ireland. Without any further adieu, I filled the application form €50 to start the process of my admission.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course that I'm pursuing is a one year masters and it has a 20 weeks work placement. It's a great combination of projects, field trips, workshops. I wanted to pursue a career in management or marketing, and enhance my knowledge and focus on a specific strategic innovation, enterprise or marketing capability.
