“Leading university of independent thinkers”

University College Cork (UCC) is an award-winning institution with a history of independent thinking stretching back over 170 years. UCC is proud to be ranked in the top 2% of universities in the world. We opened our gates to just 115 students in 1849, but now have a student population of over 22,500. UCC is a research-intensive, student-centred, international top-tier university and five-time winner of the Sunday Times Irish University of the Year.

Dr. McVeigh says “I have a passion for effective rehabilitation for people with chronic long-term conditions. With VR4REHAB I hope that I can contribute to the development and evaluation of interventions that make a real difference, help people reach their full potential, and enable people to live better lives.”
