In order to make the best use of your time on campus prospective students should try attend a presentation on a programme that you are interested in, engage with the information stands and ask any questions that you may have, and take a campus tour to explore the campus and our facilities.
The MIC, St Patrick's Campus, Thurles Open Day on 24 November runs from 10am-2pm. We recommend allowing at least two hours for your visit. When you arrive, take a few minutes to look at the schedule and plan your day accordingly. Further information on this is detailed on this section and throughout the website.
There will be a presentation by Dr Finn Ó Murchú, Head of School of Post-Primary Education, as well as brief programme outlines by College personnel at the MIC, St Patrick's Campus, Thurles Open Day. Each presentation will be given twice on the day at 11.30am and 1pm.
The presentations will guide you through what each programme entails and give you a flavour of what it is like to be a student at MIC. These presentations allow prospective students to get an insight into programme content, assessment and possible career opportunities.
Please note that MIC, St Patrick’s Campus, Thurles has introduced a new BA in Education, Mathematics & Gaeilge programme (CAO Code MI013) - for entry in 2019.

Information stands will be at the MIC, St Patrick's Campus, Thurles Open Day from 10am-2pm.
MIC students, academic staff and professional services staff will be on hand to answer your questions about our degree programmes, facilities and supports that we offer.
Throughout the Open Days, our Student Ambassadors will lead guided tours of the campus and facilities.
These are current students and can answer questions about student life here at MIC. Tours typically last 20-25 minutes and depart after the presentations.
There are 190 car parking spaces and a number of bus parking bays at MIC Limerick. Visitor parking is accessed from the Courtbrack Avenue entrance to the College.
On Open Days, due to the limited number of bus bays and the regular buses running between the three college campuses in Limerick, drivers may have to park off-site until they are picking up their groups.
The first barrier-accessed carpark on the left is free parking; the second barrier-accessed carpark after the roundabout is €3 per day. Bus bays are on the main approach (past the first barrier-accessed capark) on both sides of the road. There is no visitor parking available on weekdays by driving in the South Circular Road entrance to MIC.
There is an abundance of parking onsite at MIC Thurles.
