Academic Program
The program begins with a four-day orientation in Dublin, followed by a local orientation in Cork. University College Cork (UCC) assigns credits based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). A full course load at University College Cork is typically six courses each worth 5 ECTS and totaling 30 ECTS. Pomona awards 0.66 Pomona credits for 5 ECTS credits.
Students are required to take at least one, preferably two, 3000-level courses. Students should bear in mind that most 3000-level courses have prerequisites and admission to particular courses is contingent on approval from the relevant UCC department, based on the applicant’s background and experience.
During the fall program, Pomona students are required to enroll in the Early Start Pre-Session program. Students have the option to choose one of five courses, including Archaeology, History, Folklore, Literature or Music. Pomona students may not enroll in the Management and Marketing course. The intensive three-week course earns 5 ECTS.
Pomona limits courses in dance or music to those with an academic component. 

Students are not permitted to take any courses taught by the Arcadia study center on a P/NC basis, however, students may take direct enrollment university courses on a P/NC basis.

Living Arrangements
Doubles in self-catered apartments in student apartment complex. Pomona provides a meal allowance.  

Number of students
Arcadia enrolls approximately 30 students, selected from a national pool. University enrollment is approximately 13,000 students.
