Mary Immaculate College (MIC) is this year holding a virtual Open Day on Wednesday, 28 September.
There will be a lot of information and staff representatives available on MIC Open Day but we have compiled some specific information that may be of help in this section.
Teachers and Guidance Counsellors often accompany prospective students to Open Days, but they are not obliged to stay with them for the duration of the event.
Guardians should feel free to ask questions at the information stands, go on campus tours and attend talks (if there is space after all students have been accommodated).
On weekdays only, there are a number of options to get refreshments and relax while you are waiting.
The MISU Siopa: located on the lowest level of the TARA building, the shop has a variety of hot and cold snacks and beverages i.e. tea, coffee, sandwiches as well as a large range of confectionary. The College Restaurant in the Foundation Building serves breakfast and lunch/dinner on weekdays. It provides a range of hot and cold meal options and snacks, and there is also a coffee outlet located there.
Schools Outreach Programme
As well as organising Open Days, MIC's Schools Outreach Programme involves visiting secondary schools, attending career fairs and offering campus tours.
Each year more and more Career Guidance Counsellors are recognising the benefit of providing their transition year, fifth year and sixth year students with the opportunity to speak with a representative from Mary Immaculate College. Students gain an insight into the College's range of programmes, as well as the subject choices and career prospects related to them, and they get to ask any questions that they might have about student life at MIC. As part of the talks our Student Recruitment Officer will highlight new programmes such as the new BA in Education, Mathematics & Business Studies programme (CAO Code MI014) - new for entry 2020. Personal delivery of interactive presentations supplements information already available in the prospectus in hard-copy and web-based formats.
We are currently taking bookings for the academic year 2019-2020. To arrange a school visit at a time that is suitable for you and your class, please contact our Student Recruitment Officer (details below).
During the school year, MIC attends numerous career exhibitions and Adult Education events throughout the country. These included all of the major exhibitions in Limerick, Kerry, Cork, Clare, Tipperary, Kilkenny, Carlow, Galway, Roscommon and Dublin. If you are organising a Career Fair in your area and would like Mary Immaculate College to participate please contact Dr Cosgrove.
