Students' views on studying at MIE

At MIE we put the student at the centre of all our activities. We are committed to providing courses that challenge and ultimately prepare our students to be the leading educators of tomorrow.

Below you will see some of the views and opinions from our students on their time at MIE.


"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."


"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!"


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



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



"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."


"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."



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


"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."


"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."


"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."
