Postgraduate UCC Student

ID cards for new postrgraduate students are issued on completion of registration and orientation.  This ID card will be for the duration of the student's programme of study and will be validated each year on payment of the relevant fee.

ID cards for ongoing students, which are for the duration of the programme, will be validated at the start of the new academic year provided that the student registers online and pays the relevant fee.
