University College Cork will host its first International Student Postgraduate Showcase next Thursday, November 18th, in the Aula Maxima on the main campus at UCC from 12:30 to 14:30. Organised by the International Education Office, this free event is for International Students either taking their full degree or spending a semester or year in UCC and other Irish universities and colleges. It will help students find a top quality postgraduate programme that will increase their educational qualifications and improve their competitiveness for the job market and research opportunities ahead. International Students enrich programmes through the addition of their diverse perspectives and experiences that in turn benefit the domestic students, lecturers and research teams while also giving all postgraduates the opportunity to develop a global network of contacts increasingly important in today’s job market.
Just a sample of programmes being highlighted are Accounting and Corporate Finance, Biopharmaceutical Engineering, Business Information Systems, Film Studies, Languages, Law, Women’s Studies as well as the PhD Scholar’s Programme in Cancer Biology.
