Corvinus TY programme

TY Corvinus will be held from 13 to 17 February 2023.

This programme is based in UCC College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Studies (CACSSS) and is designed for second level Transition Year students interested in literary, creative, and historical humanities.

Our week-long programme includes a range of workshops and taster lectures/seminars on:


      • Celtic Civilisation
      • English
      • Greek and Roman Civilisation
      • History
      • History of Art
      • Theatre.

TY Corvinus students will have the opportunity to experience what it is like to be an undergraduate student, to attend lectures with undergraduate students and to experience focused study in special tutorial groups. The programme includes varied workshops (in past years, these included Creative Writing, Palaeography and Ogham, Applied Theatre: Life Skills).

This structured programme introduces TY students to a broader third-level student experience and will include a tour of the campus, an introduction to the library and a career talk.

At the end of the course, the students will receive a Certificate of Completion.

Application: Entry is by application and limited to eighteen places only.

Students will be admitted to the programme on the basis of their motivational statements and the subjects they are studying for Leaving Cert.

The deadline for this year’s applications is Friday, 18th November, 2022
