Research & Graduate School

The Research & Graduate School at Mary Immaculate College is based on the John Henry Newman Campus, adjacent to the MIC Limerick Campus, building a community of professional practice in a dedicated research space and providing office accommodation for postgraduate research students and visiting scholars.

Welcome to the Research & Graduate School!

Mary Immaculate College embraces and supports academic research at the highest level in its core fields of Education and Humanities. In the Research & Graduate School we assist staff and research postgraduate students to conduct original research, to engage in scholarship and creative innovation, and to publish the results of their work in publications and through conference presentations worldwide. The Research & Graduate School, located on the MIC John Henry Newman Campus, provides specialist research supports and professional development training for faculty and postgraduate researchers. It supports the research community in areas such as research funding, ethical decision-making and research integrity, research engagement, data management, research impact, and research exchange, publication, and dissemination.

The research experience for staff and postgraduate researchers at our College encompasses understanding of knowledge creation, the research process and research methods, and their application in educational, economic, social and global contexts.  These are skills of the here and now, and these are the skills most acutely required among the graduates of the 21st Century. These are the skills we aspire to in our graduates, and these are the skills we seek to imbue among all students of our College.

In the MIC Research & Graduate School we are committed to the highest quality postgraduate student experience. We support all research postgraduate students as they engage and progress in their journeys towards Master’s (Level 9) and Doctoral (level 10) degrees.  Our students include those studying for Master’s by Research, Traditional Ph.D., Structured Ph.D., Professional Doctorates, Monograph or Article-based Theses and Joint Awards (NFQ level 9 or 10 with a partner institution/s). The Research & Graduate School facility provides office accommodation for postgraduate research students and visiting scholars on the John Henry Newman Campus, building a community of professional practice in a dedicated research space.

I hope you find the information in this part of our website helpful and that you are encouraged to follow up by contacting our team at the Research & Graduate School who will be delighted to hear from you.
