UCC has a great reputation and if you get a degree here it will stand out to potential employers.
The college itself has a great atmosphere and the facilities are quite good. You have many opportunities to make new friends and experience new things. It's also located close to the city centre which is great for socialising as well as for the amenities such as shops, restaurants etc which are located nearby.
Area of Study
Prior to going to college I took an interest in programming and going into 1st year the course is challenging (in a good way!) and designing your own web app etc is immensely satisfying. Few other courses provide you practical skills that you can use right from the start
The main library campus is quite extensive and there is plenty of reading material related to the course content if you want to do some extra reading. Although there is not a huge need to use library books for any course work.
