EU/Non-EU Status Assessments
The designation of a student as being from the EU or a Non-EU country determines the fees they will pay at Mary Immaculate College (MIC) i.e. there may be cases where a non-EU national acquires EEA citizenship during the course of their third level studies and would qualify for the HEA's 'Free Fees' Scheme, for example.
To determine status, EU/Non-EU Status Assessments are conducted in MIC by the International Office. You are advised to contact the International Office if you have any queries E: International@mic.ul.ie.
For an indication of current status, see the EU/NonEU Fee Assessment Flow Chart.
We regret that it is not possible to complete an assessment without completing and returning the EU/Non-EU Status Assessment Form as outlined above.
- Applicants must have a Full Offer from Mary Immaculate College prior to the assessment to determine the EU/Non-EU status.
