Disability Studies Programmes at UCC

In Autumn 2020, the Centre for Adult Continuing Education (ACE) at University College Cork (UCC) is offering a Diploma in Disability Studies programme (Level 7) as well as a Higher Diploma in Facilitating Inclusion (Disability Studies) programme (Level 8). Both of these courses have been updated significantly over the past year. The programme update has made significant changes to the content of the programmes which reflect current policy and legislative developments as well as emerging discourse in the field.

Due to the current challenges around COVID-19, the programmes will be run through online live classes for the Semester 1 and it is hoped that more classroom-based teaching can be facilitated in Semester 2 of the programme.
