Sixty Entrance Scholarships are available at University College Cork. Each scholarship is worth €2,000. No more than fifteen scholarships are awarded in any one College of the university each year. Scholarships are allocated by merit in accordance with the standard UCC scoring system for the Leaving Certificate. They are therefore awarded automatically, so students do not have to apply.
Applicants must meet all entrance requirements for the University and their degree program. They must also satisfy the general conditions for the Entrance Scholarships.
