UCC PLUS+ is for students that have the potential to succeed at third level, but for a variety of reasons may be prevented from doing so. Students would typically come from lower-income households, with little or no tradition of progression to third level.

Deerpark CBS is part of the UCC PLUS+ Schools Programme. The aim of this programme is to let students see the fantastic opportunities in UCC and get them thinking about their future.

Our students can avail of the following activities: Student achievement awards, CSI Camp, Xperience CIT and UCC, Easter School, science and maths revision classes, use of study facilities in UCC, Graffiti Drama, TRIZ, and grinds.

Our Guidance Counsellor, Ms Kingston, works very closely with the excellent UCC PLUS+ team, Olive Byrne and Sheila McGovern, to ensure our students get the most out of the activities and get a real flavour for college life in UCC.
