Top Marks for Mary Immaculate College!
Mary Immaculate College, (MIC), Limerick, continues to attract Ireland’s top students onto its four undergraduate programmes in Education and the Liberal Arts, including a number of students who have received 600 or more points.
The College has again maintained its appeal to those wishing to study Education, with CAO points for the College’s primary teaching programmes remaining at 470, (430 for Gaeltacht applicants), making it among the most popular course choices in the country. Yet again this year, the BEd in Education and Psychology, the only course of its kind in the country, actually witnessed an increase in points, now standing at an impressive 555 (random selection).
Points for Liberal Arts courses across the country have fallen this year, so although the Liberal Arts Degree at Mary Immaculate College has dropped to 370 points, it continues to be among the most attractive Arts programmes in the country. Meanwhile, the College’s BA in Early Childhood Care and Education rose to 370 points, making it one of the most popular courses of its kind in Ireland.
Speaking on these results Prof. Eugene Wall, Vice-President Academic Affairs and Registrar of the College, said, “We are delighted that so many school-leavers continue to make Mary Immaculate College their first college of choice. It is gratifying to know that the high quality of our programmes and the calibre of our teaching staff is recognised by the number of students applying to the College. The popularity of the College is consistently reflected in the number of students with high points who apply for a place in the College.”
