University College Cork program is a reciprocal exchange program with students from UCC and the OUS institutions exchanging places. There are typically more OUS students studying in Ireland than students from Cork coming to Oregon. Therefore, there are a limited number of exchange spots each semester. Other qualified Oregon students will be able to go to Cork as study abroad (non-exchange students), where partial tuition to UCC is included in the program cost (OUS lowers its own program fee to help keep the cost affordable). Even though the study abroad option has a higher cost than the exchange, it is still below the cost of most other providers’ costs for a semester in Ireland.
In your application, you are required to request an exchange spot, and to explain your academic suitability, and your financial need. We take all factors into account in allotting the exchange spots. The only difference between the exchange and study abroad options is the cost – study abroad students receive all the same services from OUS and UCC, and access to all opportunities, etc., while in Ireland.
The program fee includes academic and administrative fees, orientation expenses, and health and accident insurance. The program fee does not include airfare, room and board, visa fees, campus-based fees* and personal expenses such as local transportation, textbooks, laundry, recreation (including travel), personal supplies and incidental expenses.
*Note: students will be charged a Study Abroad Fee by their home OUS institution. This fee varies by institution though is generally about $350 per term and will be billed to students by their home university. Students should also determine with their home university whether resource fees for their major will be charged during their time abroad.
Program costs are set annually, and are posted on the website in the cost sheets above. Information regarding payment schedule and refund policy will be provided during the OUS orientation.
You can finance your studies in Ireland in many ways. Most forms of financial aid, such as grants or loans for which you are eligible at your home campus, may be applied to the program. Veterans’ benefits may also be applied. Although most forms of financial aid may be applied to program costs, students should be aware that they may need to supplement their standard financial aid package.
