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.
