Cork sits on the south coast and is a busy industrial center, with food processing, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and brewing as some of the major industries. In 2005, Cork was named a European Cultural Capital because of its historic and cultural heritage. The surrounding countryside is beautiful: the granite mountains of Mourn, the lakes of Killarney, the ring of Kerry, miles of rolling hills and lush valleys. An annual international film festival is held in Cork, and in addition to a variety of cultural activities, there are many sporting opportunities.

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, its best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see the State Department's passport page for more information.

In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access visa information is the US Department of State’s country information page  

UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to knowing and addressing the requirements for your host study abroad destination.

Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose to third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).
