Brexit

Mary Immaculate College & Brexit

The separation between the United Kingdom and the rest of the European Union will have far reaching consequences and while there is still a lot of uncertainty until negotiations are complete, it’s important for you to be aware of how Brexit may impact you as a stakeholder of Mary Immaculate College.

This notification wishes to inform students, potential students, staff and others of the latest practical advice issued by the Irish Government for students from Ireland going to the UK and vice versa. All information about Brexit is subject to change as the governments and European Commission negotiations continue. The following information is therefore intended as guidance only and is subject to change.

For further information on this topic, please visit the Government of Ireland’s website at: https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/869e17-studying/  

    Higher Education

    After Brexit, Irish students will continue to be able to study in the UK and British students will be able to study in Ireland.

    Applications:

    For those wanting to study in the UK, applications for higher education places in the UK will continue to be made using current systems.

    For those wanting to study in Ireland, the Central Applications Office and State Examinations Commission are working with UK counterparts to ensure smooth continuity of the applications process. Further information will be provided as it becomes available.

    Fees:

    Irish students will still be eligible for the same rate of fees as British students in the UK. British students will still be eligible for the same fee structures as EU students in Ireland. Should you pursue your study in the United Kingdom, your fees will be set at the EU level for the 2019/ 2020 academic year, and will continue on that basis for the duration of the programme for which you have registered. The position will be reviewed in advance of the 2020/2021 academic year.

    Student Supports:

    Each year, about 1,500 students from Ireland studying in the UK and circa 200 British citizens studying in Ireland, qualify for Irish Government grant support (SUSI). After Brexit, the usual SUSI grant rules will continue to apply for UK and Irish students.

    The Irish Government is introducing legislation to ensure that these arrangements can continue to apply to eligible Irish students studying in the UK, as well as the payment of SUSI grants to UK students in Irish higher education institutions.

    For further information on this topic, please visit the Government of Ireland’s website at: https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/869e17-studying/  

    Erasmus+ Programme

    The EU Erasmus+ 2014-2020 programme provides funding for a range of international education and training projects, including student and staff mobility and exchanges, job shadowing, teaching assignments, and strategic partnerships between organisations.

    The programme will continue to operate fully for Ireland and the EU Member States. The future participation of the UK in the Erasmus+ Programme is being considered in the context of the overall negotiations between the EU and the UK.

    In the event of a no deal Brexit, the EU has prepared legislation which will come into effect automatically to ensure that students who are currently ‘on Erasmus’ in UK institutions will be permitted to complete their placement without interruption. This also applies to UK students studying in EU Member States.

    The EU Commission has also published a helpful factsheet that covers this topic.
