What are your interests?



Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Community spirit at Mary Immaculate College sets it apart from other colleges

Posted on September 18, 2018

Mary Immaculate College (MIC) has many features to recommend it as a great college.  Not least among them are leading programmes in the liberal arts, theatre studies, primary and post-primary teacher education and early childhood degrees, two state-of-art campuses in Limerick and Thurles, and a reputation for excellence in learning and research.

However, for new students entering MIC this September one of the biggest benefits to them will be the excellent student support services and the community spirit that exists throughout the College. With a student population of just over 5,000, unlike some bigger colleges, MIC gives students a home-from-home feel and a close knit community experience.

According to Dr Geraldine Brosnan, Director of Student Life at MIC; “MIC prides itself on our high quality student experience. The College's support services are extensive and of very high quality. Part of our mission and vision is to create a community of scholars where staff and students work together and our aim is to provide services, activities, and resources that maintain the College’s educational enterprise while also supporting our students personally as they learn, grow, and change through their time at MIC”.
