Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

If you are seriously considering applying for the Air Corps you should check the pre-required Leaving Certificate subjects as outlined in the cadetship booklet. This is very important!!

Also, if applying you should get the details of the fitness test from the cadetship booklet and make sure you can do each of the disciplines well before the fitness test...a lot of people fail this part of the application process, and it can be passed easily!

If possible, you should organise a visit to Baldonnel through somebody that you know or maybe even your school...just to get familiar with the aircraft and to see the daily operation of the Air Corps.

Creative?
Creative
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

New Undergraduate Scholarship Scheme

Posted on October 9, 2017

50 Undergraduate Entrance Scholarships, valued at €2,000 each, will be offered, for competition on the basis of results obtained in the Irish Leaving Certificate Examination and will be allocated to the programmes below, as follows:

The scholarships are tenable only in Mary Immaculate College, for the First Year of a full-time primary degree programme to be undertaken at MIC, in the academic year following the Leaving Certificate Examination on which the award is based.

To be eligible to receive a scholarship, a student must have met the normal entry requirements for the degree programme in question and have been validly registered for same. A student who has previously registered for a programme leading to a degree in any third level college shall not be eligible for the award of an Undergraduate Entrance Scholarship.

Scholarships shall be awarded in order of merit in accordance with the standard scoring system for Leaving Certificate results. Only performance in the six best subjects taken at the same sitting of the Leaving Certificate will be counted.

If the holder of an Undergraduate Entrance Scholarship withdraws from the programme for which s(he) has registered, or fails to continue throughout the year to meet the attendance and other requirements for the programme, including examination entry, s(he) may be required to repay to the College the whole or part of the scholarship.

No special application form is required for Undergraduate Entrance Scholarships. Successful students will be notified directly.
