MIC Bank Details

The bank transfer facility allows individuals/organisations to pay fees on behalf of a MIC student without having access to confidential student information on the student portal.

Important: it is vital that the relevant student number is quoted in the reference details of the bank transfer. Omission of the student number will result in delayed processing of payment. 

Students should be aware that, due to lead time for funds to reach our bank account, it can take up to 10 days for EFT payments to be updated on to your student record.

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.

Aside from tuition fees, other charges apply for various aspects of programmes or if you have to repeat exams, modules, subjects and academic years. These are outlined in:

Library Fines

The MIC Library imposes late fines if students do not drop books back on time (20c per day on standard loans; €1 per day for 3 Day Loans & 1 Day Loans and €1 per hour for 4 Hour Loans). The maximum fine on each item is €10 and to borrow, total fines must not exceed €3.

Please Note: You will not be able to graduate unless you have paid all fees and cleared all debts prior to your graduation.


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:  

    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.


    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.


    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:  


    The HEA (Higher Education Authority) issued the following notice in respect of fees treatment of UK students in Ireland: 

    On Friday the 11th January 2019, the Department of Education and Skills announced that eligible UK students who enrol for eligible courses for the 2019/20 academic year in a third level college recognised for the purposes of free fees and student grant purposes, would be eligible to avail of the Department’s Free Fees and Student Grant schemes. This included the student contribution fee for Irish and EU citizens which currently stands at €3,000. It was noted that the position would be reviewed in advance of the 2020/2021 academic year.

    A Memo of Understanding (MoU) on the Common Travel Area (CTA) was signed between Ireland and the UK in May 2019. The MoU acknowledged the importance of education noting that “the CTA affords Irish and British citizens the right of access to all levels of education and training, and associated student support in each other’s State on terms no less favourable than those for citizens of that State.”

    In terms of higher education, this means that notwithstanding Brexit, UK students will still be eligible for the same fee structures as EU students in Ireland. For the free fees initiative, once students meet all other criteria as set out in the Free Fees Initiative:

    • Students with UK nationality will continue to be eligible under the nationality criteria of the free fees scheme;
    • UK residency will continue to contribute towards fulfilling the ordinarily resident criteria of the scheme.

    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.
