Student Charter

The Student Learning and Partnership Dialogue Charter is a bipartite agreement between MIC and the Mary Immaculate College Students’ Union (MISU), the representative body for the students of MIC.

Launched in January 2021, it aims to outline the commitments, expectations, responsibilities and underpinning dialogue processes between the College and its students. The overarching objective of this pioneering new charter is to facilitate student success.

The charter, which replaces the current Student Charter, also acknowledges that the landscape of higher education is never static; rather it is dynamic and ever changing for students and the College.
