    Orientation 2019

    All MIC First Year students have to attend an Orientation in Week 0 (the week before classes officially start) to get their ID cards, set up email accounts, learn about essential academic procedures and of course, meet and socialise with fellow new students. Each programme has its own schedule. This year, Orientation is on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 September for MIC Limerick and Thursday 5 September for MIC Thurles students. Parents’ Orientation is on the evening of Monday 2 September. This event is a good opportunity to meet key staff members at MIC and get to know more about the College.

    Go to Orientation here.

    In the video below, MIC Director of Student Life, Dr Geraldine Brosnan, describes what Orientation involves.

    Mary Immaculate Students' Union (MISU)

    Mary Immaculate Students' Union (MISU) is the representative body for the students of MIC, providing support, advice and representation for its members, the students of the College who are based across two campuses, one in Limerick and the other in Thurles. Students automatically become members of MISU upon enrolment.

    The student body is represented by a democratically elected Executive Committee and MISU is administered by a General Manager, Finance Coordinator, Clubs & Societies Coordinator, Student Advocacy & Representation Assistant and a Receptionist.

    Go to MISU website here.

    In the video below, meet the president and vice-president of MISU as they explain briefly what the union does, and upcoming SU events/activities for new and current students.
