"My time spent in Berlin was the best experience of my life to date. I fell instantly in love with the city! Berlin has so much to offer, no matter what time of the year, from Christmas markets to cultural festivals."
Sarah, B.A. student at MIC, teacher of English as a Foreign Language in Berlin
Students doing a degree in German at Mary Immaculate College have the opportunity to spend either a full academic year or a shorter period of time in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. Studying or working abroad will allow students to use the German language in an authentic context and experience everyday life abroad. This experience will not only help them to improve their language competences, but also to deepen their intercultural knowledge and skills. Since intercultural experiences are highly valued by many employers, a stay abroad will furthermore increase students' job prospects.
Mary Immaculate College takes part in several international exchange programmes which offer financial assistance to students either studying or working abroad.
If you decide to spend some time in a German speaking country you will be supported by the departmental staff as well as the Placement Office during the preparation of your stay abroad. You will also stay in contact with a member of staff and the Placement Office during your time abroad in case of any problems occuring.
