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. Due to Covid-19 we are only offering online school presentations at present.

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. Personal delivery of interactive presentations supplements information already available in the prospectus in hard-copy and web-based formats. 

We are taking bookings for the current academic year. To arrange a school presentation please contact our Student Recruitment Officer (details below).

Take the Virtual Tour!

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions it isn't possible to visit MIC's Limerick or Thurles campus to have a look around like you would do during an Open Day in other years.
