Cork City, Ireland as a study destination

Many of our students say they decided upon Cork city as a study destination because they wanted to live somewhere different and break away from the norm of studying in the bigger cities. The city has a population of 190,000 people and is a vibrant University city with 40% of the population under 25. Cork offers a unique, charming and friendly welcome to all.

Cork City is just the right size to feel at home quickly, and yet has all the character of a cosmopolitan city.

Cork has always been a major centre for the arts in Ireland but, since its designation as European City of Culture in 2005, the city has upped its game significantly. The calendar of major festivals hosted in Cork throughout the year caters for all tastes, with events in performance and visual arts, choral singing, comedy, film, folk music, jazz, literature, writing, and traditional music, to name but a few.
