WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT MARINO INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION MIE was most definitely my first choice. It was a case of falling in love at the open day and it’s been a decision I’d make again in a heartbeat.

Whether it’s the surroundings, the courses, or the MIE community, you’ll love every aspect of life here.

The B.Ed. course is engaging at every level with reminders of what you’re working towards every day. The lecturers are exceptionally approachable and experienced in their given fields; you’ll be encouraged and nurtured every step of the way.

The B.Sc. in Education Studies is a brilliant course for students to learn about all aspects of education and to experience a different work placement in each year. It provides an ideal foundation for many career opportunities in education.

2

Having come to MIE by myself it did seem daunting at first but you settle into life here so quickly and you’ll make friends with staff and students alike, which will make you feel at home in no time!

You’ll always feel there’s somebody there for you should you need them, which is why the friendly communal aspect of MIE is so special. I couldn’t recommend MIE highly enough.

The sports teams have been successful over the last number of years winning all-Irelands and representing the college in a very positive light.

Overall MIE is a great college and as there is a small number of students in Marino it is certain that you will get to know everyone very quickly.


Marino Institute of Education was a perfect choice for completing my postgraduate qualification in Primary Teaching as it is a small institution which means you’re not a number. Everyone is really open and welcoming and you get to know people so well.

I thoroughly enjoyed my “college experience”, both academically and socially. There is a strong sense of community within Marino Institute of Education which is reflected through a high level of engagement amongst students and one can easily make life-long friends.

During my postgraduate studies I was fortunate to have the support of the college and my family. I am truly grateful for the guidance and support offered by the lecturers who got to know us on a first name basis; I could knock on the door of any of the lecturers, and they always responded to my queries.

The workload was challenging and varied but we made it thanks to the support given to us.

The classes were very interactive which made it enjoyable and fulfilling. My various teaching placements during the course were an invaluable experience due to the backup given to us.

Overall, my time in Marino was extremely positive, with an atmosphere of openness, warmth and encouragement. The course was filled with an abundance of new experiences and challenges, which resulted in me fulfilling my dream.

BACHELOR IN EDUCATION (B.ED.) CAO codes: CM001/CM002

What is the Bachelor in Education?

Gaeltacht

Helping young people learn has to be one of the most satisfying and rewarding careers of all. By choosing the Bachelor in Education programme you embark on a four year course that will prepare you for working in primary schools in Ireland. You will find out how children learn to read, write, count and calculate; you’ll learn how to introduce them to the arts the magic and mysteries of the world around them and how to grow and develop in a healthy way.

As part of the B.Ed. programme you must spend time, typically two two-week periods, in the Gaeltacht to develop your knowledge of the Irish language and culture. Students pay this fee directly to the Gaeltacht College.

What will I study? Over the four years of the programme you will learn how to teach children aged from 4 to 12. In the foundation studies you will study how children learn, what factors influence their learning and how our understanding of this has changed over time. Advance your own knowledge of curriculum subjects and learn specific methods for teaching all primary school subjects. Experience the challenge and satisfaction of teaching through engaging in school placement in a supportive environment. You will have the opportunity to study for a certificate in Catholic Religious Education in preparation for teaching in schools under the patronage of the Catholic Church. The opportunity to study for a certificate in Multi-belief and Ethical Curricula in Diverse School Contexts is also available to you.

School placement During the four years of the B.Ed. programme, you will have a variety of placement experiences. You will have opportunities to experience placements in urban and rural schools, single sex and co-educational schools, multi-grade and single class situations, DEIS schools and Gaelscoileanna nó Scoileanna Gaeltachta. You will also engage in a Special Educational placement in the second year of your programme. This provides you with the opportunity to experience school life in a variety of contexts.

4

What are my career options? Most graduates of the B.Ed. programme become primary teachers in schools in the Republic of Ireland. Some travel abroad to teach English as an additional language or to teach in primary schools elsewhere. Occasionally graduates work in areas other than education such as in the media or in research.

What other options do I have? In time some graduates pursue further studies in education at diploma, masters or doctoral level. Such additional qualifications open up possibilities of careers as a curriculum leader in a school, principal teacher, teacher educator, educational psychologist or as an inspector with the Department of Education and Skills.

BACHELOR IN SCIENCE (EDUCATION STUDIES) CAO code: CM010

What is the B.Sc. in Education Studies?

Work placement

Education happens in all kinds of places and throughout our lives – not just in school buildings and not just in our early years. If you choose the B.Sc. in Education Studies, you learn about the many ways, times and places in which people learn, and how these have changed over time. You will come to appreciate how education can enhance people’s lives and how different approaches benefit different people at different times of their lives, depending on what they need to learn. Learn about the formal and informal educational opportunities available to people, whether it is their first or second chance to experience for themselves the benefits of education.

A work placement is integral to each year of the programme. This can take place in locations such as education centres, non-government organisations (NGOs), arts/culture and media organisations, community education programmes, programmes run by the Department of Education and Skills as well as in formal educational institutions from pre-school to third level and further education. All students undertake an internship in the final year of the programme in an education setting of their choice.

What will I study? During the programme you will learn about adult, adolescent and early childhood education through attendance at classes, hands on learning, reading and skill development. The modules delivered on the programme encompass the themes of life-long learning, ethics and social justice, education and culture, and education policies and practices. The modules cover technology, the arts, curriculum and programme design, policy analysis and much more. In addition to the core modules you will select a specialisation module, which you pursue through the first three years of the programme. You will also select an optional module each year.

6

What are my career options? The degree of B.Sc. in Education Studies provides skills and competencies that are useful in a wide range of careers. Many opportunities exist in the area of education and training. On completion of the programme you could work as an adult educator, an instructional designer, an education off icer, or an education advisor.

What other options do I have? Due to the diverse nature of the programme, upon successful completion of this level 8 programme, students can continue to further study in the areas of training, development and education. They may also apply for the Professional Master in Education (Primary Teaching) programme, in MIE or elsewhere.

Fees The Bachelor in Education is covered by the Free Fees initiative which means that most students will pay only the annual Student Contribution. The Department of Education and Skills does not cover tuition fees for students on MIEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bachelor in Science programmes and therefore tuition fees are charged directly to students. Marino Institute of Education has committed to retaining its fees on the Bachelor in Science programmes at the same level as the Student Contribution which applies on publicly funded programmes. A grant or tax relief on fees paid may be available. Contact the Institute directly for details of fees for other programmes in 2016â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2017.

Support for all students with disabilities is provided through the Disability Service in Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin. For further information please log on to www.mie.ie/access or contact the Access Officer at access@mie.ie.
