Mary Immaculate College has announced that its autumn semester will be starting at the end of September.

Ordinarily, lectures and tutorials at the Limerick college resume for each academic year at the beginning of September, President Eugene Wall has confirmed that its autumn semester will now commence at the end of September.

All second, third and fourth year undergraduate students along with current and new postgraduate students will return to Mary Immaculate College on September 28th. They anticipate that the spring semester will begin as planned on January 25th 2021 for all students. Dates may have to be revised in line with official government advice.

A spokesperson for Mary I outlined that “external factors” such as the confirmation of the Leaving Certificate dates, the completion of CAO offers and acceptances will influence the start date for incoming first years.

“If the Leaving Certificate takes place as currently planned at the end of July, then it is hoped that the semester will commence for first years at MIC at the beginning of November. However, as there is considerable uncertainty surrounding this projected date, such matters lie beyond the control of the College”.
