      Grants

      Students apply for a grant through Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) and if they meet certain criteria, they may be eligible for full or partial financial support.

      Before applying at www.susi.ie, the body encourages students to review the criteria carefully.

      Scholarships & Awards

      Mary Immaculate College has a range of initiatives for incoming students, to provide financial and academic support. These include entrance and sports scholarships, and CAO concessions. Once students have been accepted to/are attending the College, there are bursaries and awards for undergraduates and postgraduates to provide financial and practical assistance and aid them in pursuing further study. Some schemes are specific to, and funded by, MIC while others are funded by the Irish Government and the EU.

      Regardless of whom the fee payer is, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to ensure fees are paid in accordance with MIC Fee Regulations.

      • Second instalment of course fees due: 10 January 2021

      All fees due to the College must be paid by the prescribed payment dates. It is the responsibility of the student to familiarise themselves with the MIC Fee Regulations and payment dates in relation to student fees. Reminders will normally be issued but it is the obligation of each student to ensure timely payment of fees.  All registered students have access to their fee records and statements at all times in their student portal.

      Students who find themselves in financial difficulties in relation to fee payments should immediately contact the Fees Office who will advise them of the supports which may be available to them.

      Students with outstanding fees at the end of any semester will not receive their examination results nor be allowed access to register for the following;

      • Academic session.
      • Student ID Cards may be deactivated in the case of overdue fees.
      • Postgraduate Students in receipt of supervision may have access to that supervision suspended.
      • Students may not receive information regards conferring ceremonies and will not be allowed to graduate until all outstanding debts to the College have been cleared.

      For more information, please see the Student Handbook.

      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 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 further and higher study in the UK, your fees will be set at the same level as citizens in the UK for the 2020/2021 academic year, and will continue on that basis for the duration of the programme for which you have registered. The Common Travel Area (CTA) means Ireland and the UK will take steps to ensure Irish and British citizens can continue to access further and higher education into the future.

         

        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.

        Covid-19 payment scheme for third level students

        Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD and Minister of State for Skills and Further Education Niall Collins TD have announced a €50 million once-off COVID-19 payment scheme for third level students.

        Government Press release: COVID-19 payment scheme for third level students. 

         

        Eligibility

        All full-time EU (European Union) undergraduate and postgraduate students are eligible for the payment in recognition of the significant upheaval they have experienced due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

        Under the plans communicated by Government on 19/11/2020:

        • Students that avail of Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) support will receive a €250 top-up in their grant before Christmas.
        • Students that do not get SUSI will receive a credit on their student account of €250.
        • In a small number of cases, alternative arrangements will be made for the payment of the monies to students.

         

        How do I claim the Covid-19 once-off payment?

        There is no requirement for you to apply for the payment nor to contact the college. 

        • Students in receipt of SUSI will be dealt with directly by SUSI.
        • Students not eligible for SUSI will have a credit of €250 applied to their student account in the coming weeks that will be available for offset against student contribution fees owed.
        • If you are eligible for the Covid-19 once off payment but neither of the above situations apply to you the college will contact you directly in the coming weeks.
