MIC has a variety of safety protocols in place around its campuses

Face Coverings - Updated 28 February 2022

28 February 2022 sees confirmation that face mask wearing is no longer mandatory in public spaces, with certain exceptions including public transport and health care settings.

The College will continue to strongly encourage all to wear a face mask while moving about on campus and in lecture or group settings. This is in the best interest of all campus users and especially those with underlying health issues or related to those in such categories.

While progress is evident towards the end of the public health crisis – you can play your part in ensuring this trend continues and in safeguarding you and your class groups/friends by continued face mask use.

Communication to Students from Professor Niamh Hourigan, Vice President of Academic Affairs - 25 January 2022

Dear Students

A very warm welcome back as the Spring Semester commences.

By now you will all have heard details of the Government’s announcement on Friday night with regards to the easing of certain COVID restrictions. I am sure most of us are delighted with this news albeit, still somewhat anxious given the fact that COVID is still very much in our midst.

Following a meeting today of the Covid 19 Steering Group of the Department of Further and Higher Education, it has been agreed that no changes will be made to our academic delivery model for the coming semester. Therefore, the arrangements for the Spring semester already communicated remain in place, and the Spring timetable as published last week stills holds, with large classes taking place online and small classes, with less than 80 students per session, taking place face-to-face, on-campus.

Further communications will follow with regard to how the easing of these restrictions may impact on our COVID Campus Safety Protocols as the semester progresses.  As you will also be aware, free rapid antigen tests are being made available to all students this week and we hope to roll out distribution of same over the next few days. 

As always all our plans continue to be contingent upon further guidance from the Department of Further and Higher Education and the Public Health authorities in addition to COVID cases on campus but we will continue to monitor the situation over the next few weeks and plan accordingly. We will keep you informed if, and when, any changes are called for. In the interim. I would like to remind you of our dedicated COVID Hub which continues to be updated with additional MIC measures as they become available. 

Wishing you all the best for the semester ahead.

Niamh Hourigan, VPAA

Academic Delivery FAQ

Spring Semester: Semester 2 will commence on Monday 24 January 2022 for all students and will end on Monday 16 May 2022. The semester will consist of 12 weeks of teaching, followed by a study week and two weeks of assignments/exams.

MIC has engaged with the Department of Further & Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science and with public health officials in preparation for the return of students to on-campus lectures and activities. At all times the safety of students and staff will be to the fore of academic planning. As the COVID-19 situation remains unpredictable, plans may change throughout the semester depending on the latest advice from Government.

That being said MIC remains committed to a significant increase in the level of activity on campus this academic year, with most of the academic content being delivered on-campus and in-person. To that end, we will operate a hybrid model of academic provision with large classes taking place online and small classes, with less than 80 students per session, taking place face-to-face, on-campus.

Face-to-face lectures, tutorials and labs will not exceed one hour per session and will be held within naturally ventilated or air extraction enhanced rooms, with ventilation between sessions.

Additional study and lecture log-on facilities will be made available to students using study pods and the Res Block rooms. These are bookable in advance via the library and a thorough cleaning programme will be in place between sessions.

Detergent wipes and other cleaning equipment can be found at designated stations throughout the campus to enable self-cleaning before and after any equipment used by students.

The library will reopen on Monday 6 September with normal opening hours but will operate under certain restrictions around overall numbers permitted inside at one time. More details on the exact operation of the Limerick & Thurles libraries will be circulated shortly.

As always, please check your student email regularly for further guidance.

Semester timetables are available to view on the MIC website here

In order to facilitate the transition between classes, additional study spaces have been provided. There are 163 bookable study spaces available on campus – 98 spaces in the Library and 65 spaces in the Res Block and these are available to book here.

Please note:

  • All the seats are for individual study only.
  • Seats can be booked for a minimum of 15 minutes and a maximum of 4 hour per day.
  • 5 simultaneous bookings (of up to 4 hours each) per week can be made.
  • At the scheduled booking time, students will have 15 minutes to check in at their seat after which the booking will be cancelled and the seat will be made available for others to book.
  • Term & Conditions apply.
  • Further study space will be provided on campus if required. 

Further details, and the terms and conditions are available here.

MIC Library’s online services continue to be available 24 hours per day to students and staff, and these are accessible via the Library Website. For more information on all Library services this year please visit our Library Services Guide.

How to Contact Us and Get Help

Library staff will be available to answer online queries from 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday. All user queries should be emailed to library@mic.ul.ie or sent through the Ask A Question link on the Library Website. Information on all MIC Library Services is also available on our A-Z of Services page on the Library Website.

Top 10 tips for students studying at home:

  1. Get up early as if it was a normal College day.
  2. Establish a structure to your day. Block out times for lectures, study, meals, exercise etc.
  3. There are a number of online tools such as Skype or Zoom that you can download for free and enable you to coordinate video chats with groups of people. Use these programs to set up study groups with course mates so you can spend some time discussing ideas, analysing texts together and swapping study tips.
  4. Engage with your learning. Put your phone down while studying or listening to an online lecture as if you were in the library or in an actual lecture. Be prepared, do the readings and take notes as in a normal lecture.
  5. Organise a designated space for study.
  6. It is normal to feel lonely at the moment. Stay in touch with your peers and friends using social media.
  7. Take regular breaks. Get out for a walk/run/cycle every day but practice physical distancing. Alternatively, get 30 minutes of exercise at home. There are a number of workouts on Youtube to choose from; www.fitnessblender.com is another good source.
  8. Eat healthy, well-balanced meals and healthy snacks.
  9. Anxiety is a normal human emotion. It is likely that the uncertainty we are facing at the moment can increase feelings of anxiety. Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories. www2.hse.ie/wellbeing/mental-health/minding-your-mental-health-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak.html
  10. Activities like yoga and meditation can help with feelings of stress and anxiety. There are lots of Youtube videos to choose from.

Communication to Students from Professor Niamh Hourigan, Vice President of Academic Affairs - 17 November 2021

Dear Student,

As we move towards the latter part of the semester, I am writing to update you on plans for the Spring semester.

As you will know, we had hoped that a full return to on-campus delivery would be possible for the latter part of this academic year. However, given the upward trajectory of COVID-19 cases and the most recent Government health and safety advice, we have taken the considered decision to continue with the current hybrid-model of academic delivery with large classes taking place online and small classes, with less than 80 students per session, taking place face-to-face, on-campus. These face-to-face lectures, tutorials and labs will not exceed one hour per session and all the safety measures currently in place will continue to be operated; that is mandatory wearing of face-masks, well-ventilated teaching and meeting rooms, good hand hygiene etc. All of our Student Services and Supports and facilities will continue to fully operate as they have done this semester. However, all services will remain responsive to the prevailing public health environment so if disruptions to services do arise we ask you to be patient in bearing with such conditions.

Semester 2 will commence on Monday 24 January 2022 for all students and will end on Monday 16 May 2022. The semester will consist of 12 weeks of teaching, followed by a study week and two weeks of assignments/exams. Work is currently underway on the development of the timetable for Semester 2 and these timetables will be published, in conjunction with UL, the week of 17 January 2022.

Obviously, all our plans continue to contingent upon further guidance from the Department of Further and Higher Education and the Public Health authorities but we will continue to monitor the situation over the next few weeks and plan accordingly. We will keep you informed if, and when any changes are called for. In the interim. I would like to remind you of our dedicated COVID Hub which continues to be updated with additional MIC measures as they become available. 

Wishing you all the best for the remainder of the current semester.

Niamh Hourigan, VPAA

Communication to Students from Professor Niamh Hourigan, Vice President of Academic Affairs - 23 August 2021

Dear Student, 

I hope you all had an enjoyable summer and are looking forward to returning to campus for the coming academic year. In advance of its commencement I wanted to take this opportunity to set out some aspects of the coming semester.

Academic Provision:

As per earlier communications, MIC remains committed to a significant increase in the level of activity on campus this academic year, with most of the academic content being delivered on-campus and in-person. To that end, we will operate a hybrid model of academic provision with large classes taking place online and small classes, with less than 80 students per session, taking place face-to-face, on-campus.  We are currently working towards having the finalised timetable available early next week.

Please note if you have an underlying medical condition, which may inhibit your capacity to return to campus, there will be an opportunity to contact the College to discuss once the timetable has been issued. Otherwise, there is an expectation that students will be on campus for their scheduled face-to-face classes.

Orientation:

We are acutely aware that many students may not been on campus since March 2020, and indeed some students have yet to come on campus. As such, we will host a series of re-orientation/welcome sessions including a number of virtual orientation events. Further details will be communicated to each year group directly in the coming weeks but the schedules available at this time can be viewed here.

Student Services & Supports:

Student services and supports are central to the MIC college experience and so we would encourage you to re-familiarise yourself with the great  many supports available to you throughout the academic year. We would also ask that you link in with your relevant Faculty Office and Mary I Students’ Union (MISU) who will be happy to update you on campus amenities and facilities. The COVID-19 Hub is another great resource to stay abreast of developments as it continues to be updated on a regular basis.

Campus Safety:

As safety is our utmost priority we have put in place a range of additional measures to protect student health as we all return to campus and these can be reviewed in our updated MIC Student Campus Safety Protocol . The protocol is an important reference point and will be updated as needed so please continue to refer to it on a regular basis.

This year, more so than ever, all of us have a vital part to play in preventing the spread of infection as the safety of our community relies on a responsible partnership between MIC students and the College. Our COVID-19 Student Charter outlines the commitment expected by all students throughout the academic year 2021-2022.

Given that COVID 19 is still with us, we envisage that there may be a certain amount of change and disruption on campus this semester in the event of a serious concentration of cases. We ask that you continue to bear with us while we deal with these challenges should they arise. 

The last academic year was very challenging for both staff and students. However, we remain optimistic that this academic year will allow more face-to-face engagement and an improved on-campus experience for us all. 

We will continue to issue updates directly to you via your student account and we will also post updated information across all our platforms, including our dedicated COVID-19 Hub, as it becomes available.

We look forward to working with you throughout the academic year to create a safe learning environment for all the MIC community.

Until then enjoy the wonderful sunshine.

Best wishes,

Professor Niamh Hourigan

Vice President of Academic Affairs.

Prof. Niamh Hourigan, Vice President Academic Affairs to students on 16 June 2021

Dear Student,

As promised, I am writing to update you on academic delivery plans for the Academic Year 2021/22 and am happy to inform you that planning for next semester has been well underway for the past few months.  Here at MIC we continue to liaise with our colleagues across the Higher Education sector in order to establish the best possible model for academic delivery while continuing to ensure that the health and safety of our students and staff remains a priority consideration.

Yesterday saw the publication of A Safe Return to Campus framework document, developed by the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science (DFHERIS) in consultation with various stakeholders including Mary Immaculate College, with the primary objective of ensuring that HE, FE and research are recognised as essential services. This framework gives institutions the autonomy to develop their own plans for re-opening their campuses accordingly, but always within the context of the most up to date public health guidelines.

I would like to assure you that MIC is committed to a significant increase in the level of activity on campus next semester with most of the academic content being delivered on campus and in person and we remain hopeful that the vaccine roll out will facilitate an almost complete return to full on-campus activities before the year is out.

We are planning a safe return to campus for all, including those who have yet to be vaccinated or have a health vulnerability.  As always your safety and the safety of our entire community remains our priority.

At a minimum we are committed to providing the following activities and resources on campus as of September providing that public health advice does not change: 

  • Small to medium sized lectures (larger lectures will be delivered online initially)
  • Classroom based teaching and learning
  • Tutorials
  • Workshops
  • Laboratory teaching and learning
  • Research
  • Access to the library
  • Access to quiet spaces to join online lectures remotely*
  • Canteen service on both campuses*
  • An Siopa*
  • Sports Facilities*
  • Accommodation*
  • Clubs & Societies*

*Operational in accordance with public health advice

Semester Dates:

Autumn Semester: For 2nd, 3rd & 4th year students and Postgraduate students the Autumn Semester (Semester 1) will commence on Monday 6 September and end on 18 December 2021.  The semester will consist of 12 weeks of teaching, followed by a study week and two weeks of assignments/exams.

First year students will commence on September 27, to allow for rescheduled Leaving Certificate results and ​subsequent CAO offers, and will undertake a 12 week semester.

Spring Semester (Semester 2) will commence on Monday 24 January 2022 for all students and will end on Monday 16 May 2022. The semester will consist of 12 weeks of teaching, followed by a study week and two weeks of assignments/exams.

Orientation:

Cognisant of the fact that most of you have not been on campus since March 2020, and indeed some of you have yet to come on campus, we will host Re-Orientation/Welcome sessions for Years 2, 3 & 4 and Postgraduate students. Further details will be available towards the end of the summer.

Timetable:

As always the timetable will be available on the MIC website and student portal the week before the start of the semester (week beginning 30 August 2021).

Ongoing Planning:

The successful implementation of a full return to campus can only take place within public health guidelines and will rely heavily on an effective vaccine rollout programme over the summer months, coupled with everyone continuing to adhere to public health guidelines. We will continue to monitor the situation over the next few weeks and plan accordingly recognising that public health advice is subject to change and that some uncertainty will always exist.

In the interim we would ask you to check into your MIC student account from mid-August onwards should we need to communicate further with you. We will post updated information across all our platforms, including our dedicated COVID-19 Hub, as it becomes available.

In conclusion I would like to thank you all for your incredible commitment, endurance and resilience over the past 18 months. It has been an incredibly tough year but thankfully a better year awaits us all.

I look forward to welcoming you back on campus next semester.

Until then have a safe and happy summer.

Prof. Niamh Hourigan

FAQs

Yes. 

Limerick Students: Five antigen tests per student are now available. To avail of these tests, please click here.

Thurles Students: Five free antigen tests per student are now available. To avail of these tests, please contact Rob O’ Halloran. 

It is important that the health of the most vulnerable groups in society is protected. The provision of these free tests is to raise awareness that antigen testing offers an additional layer of protection, to prevent onward transmission. Essentially, this initiative is about protecting each other, and our wider community.  

Furthermore, it is important that antigen tests are completed at home and not on campus. If you have symptoms, please do not come on campus. If you have any questions, please contact Nurse Bernie, Covid Isolation Manager at CovidManagerLimerick@mic.ul.ie or see check out the HSE website for all the latest updates.

Note: In relation to Antigen Test Kits: kits/contents should not be stored in a plastic bag but kept out of daylight and stored between 2-18 degrees Celsius.

Students should continue to wear face masks.

In the interests of everyone’s health, the wearing of face masks on campus will continue when people are in common areas, corridors and travelling through the campus etc.

The wearing of face masks in the Library remains mandatory and in the Restaurant people are required to wear masks when moving about.

Mask Etiquette & Cleanliness

How do I safely put on and take off a mask?

The HSE has produced guidance on how to wear a face mask safely which can be found here.

How do I keep my mask clean?

The HSE has produced guidance on keeping face masks clean which you can find here.

No specific distance is specified within teaching spaces but people should behave with personal responsibility. 

If a student tests positive for COVID-19, the student should follow the HSE advice and inform public health authorities of persons they have been in close contact with. It is subsequently a matter for public health authorities to notify students and staff that they are a close contact and to provide appropriate advice. The College will only advise staff or students that they should restrict their movements, following consultation with and advice from public health authorities.

The student should also notify the relevant faculty/school office, which in turn will inform the Medical Centre.

The College advises everyone to download the HSE COVID Tracker App, as it will inform them if they have been a close contact.

Please Note: The definition of what constitutes ‘a close contact’ is changing regularly. Please see the HSE website for updates.

For information on what to do in the case of suspected COVID-19 case(s) on campus see here.

MIC recognises that some students may have their in-person attendance interrupted by requirements to self-isolate. In line with our commitment under the Plan for a Safe Return to "make appropriate provisions for vulnerable…students and learners", module leaders are asked to ensure that their Moodle site includes the basic online support materials for their module – e.g. a module outline, a lecture schedule, reading lists and materials, lecture notes, PPT slide decks or recorded lectures. The student should not be penalised for non-physical attendance.

For the most up to date definition of a close contact and advice on what to do if you meet the criteria, check the HSE website here.

No.

The College will never inform you if you are a close contact of someone; rather a member of the HSE Contact Tracing team will contact you directly if you are deemed to be a close contact.

No. However, the College recommends that all students are vaccinated to protect against the coronavirus. Follow this link for more information about the vaccination programme in Ireland.

You cannot be asked for your vaccination status by the College.

Please note: If you have an underlying medical condition, which may inhibit your capacity to return to campus, please contact returntocampus@mic.ul.ie once the timetable has been issued. Otherwise, there is an expectation that students will be on campus for their scheduled face-to-face classes.

MIC is implementing a range of measures to ensure that students can be safely taught in person, where government guidance and local health and safety circumstances allows. If you have any concerns, you should speak to your GP and/or hospital specialist in the first instance. If, after seeking medical advice, you decide to proceed with making a request to studying remotely, please email returntocampus@mic.ul.ie and attach any relevant supporting certification from an appropriate  consultant or specialist service. It may also be helpful to speak with the COVID Nurse who will provide reassurance that any additional health measures that MIC can take are in place.

In determining if studying online is a suitable alternative for you, your faculty or department will be contacted so consideration can be given to all aspects of your course, such as practical elements, group work, placements and professional requirements. For some students, it may not be possible to study online. In these cases, students can discuss alternatives with SAA such as taking leave of absence or deferring.

Students who are required to attend lectures, tutorials, workshops or seminars and who live with very high risk individuals should follow the HSE guidelines to protect themselves and to COVID-19 Guidance to minimise risk of transmission. The implementation of the COVID-19 Student Protocol is intended to minimize the risk of transmission on campus. There is no special arrangement in place providing for students who live with someone in the high risk category to study from home. 

It may also be helpful to speak with the MIC COVID Nurse who will provide reassurance and guidance about any additional health measures that both the College and an individual student can take. The MIC COVID Nurse, in tandom with the College’s Health and Safety Office and Director of Estates will ensure these additional measures are in place.

Suitable material cleaning materials will be on hand to allow users to clean down equipment before and after use.
