This time of the year ordinarily sees Mary Immaculate College (MIC) run its popular undergraduate programme Taster Sessions. The sessions give potential applicants a great opportunity to get a flavour of college life before deciding upon their final CAO choices.

MIC Virtual Q & A Sessions

This year, in light of the COVID-19 restrictions, MIC is instead offering interested parties the chance to ask their lecturers, and other key members of the college community, anything they would like to know about MIC, and its degrees, via a series of Instagram Live Q & A sessions.

According to Dr Patrick Cosgrove, MIC Student Recruitment Officer; ‘Giving potential students an insight into what they can expect when they begin a programme of study at MIC is at the core of the MIC Taster Sessions. Even though the current situation precludes them from running them this year MIC wanted to ensure people still get the opportunity to engage with the College and have all their questions answered. The Instagram Live Q & A sessions will be of particular interest to current leaving certificate students in helping them make their final decision on what programmes to include on their CAO Application form and is open to guidance counsellors, parents, mature students and those seeking to progress from further education routes to third-level study.’
