Before submitting an application you should contact MIC and we will consider your case with the relevant Head of Department of the course you wish to transfer to.

EU/Non-EU Status Assessments

The designation of a student as being from the EU or a Non-EU country determines the fees they will pay at MIC, i.e. there may be cases where a non-EU national acquires EEA citizenship during the course of their third-level studies and would qualify for EU fees for example.

Visit the school's website for more information on EU/Non-EU assessments which will be conducted by MIC International office to determine status.

Scholarships & funding

International scholarships are not available. Third-level education in Ireland is already heavily subsidised by the Government so our tuition fees are already lower than other countries and directly benefit the student.

Program delivery

The program, running from September to July, is delivered entirely by full-time faculty in the MIC Department of History. It consists of six taught modules in history and 20,000 word dissertation. Teaching takes place in small, supportive groups where discussion and debate are encouraged.

Modules are taught on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the autumn and spring semesters, with classes from 4-7pm. All modules are assessed by means of continuous assessment. The dissertation is normally due in August.

The program is also available in part-time (two years) and flexible part-time (over a maximum of three years) options.
