TOD Web Profile

Marino Institute of Education (MIE) is a higher education institution with a singular focus on education. For more than 100 years, students at MIE have learned how to become teachers; practising teachers have refined their skills and specialties through post-graduate courses and our researchers have deepened our understanding about education, its practice and impact.

 Our story began in 1904 with the establishment of a Christian Brothers Educational Research & Resource Training Centre in Dublin, which in 1929 was recognised as a Teacher Training College. In 1976, we formed an association with Trinity College Dublin, when the first intake of lay students registered for the Bachelor in Education (B.Ed.) course.
In July 2011, this relationship was further strengthened when MIE was placed under the joint trusteeship of the Congregation of Christian Brothers European Province and Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin (Trinity). As an Associated College of Trinity, our academic programmes are validated, quality assured and accredited by Trinity College Dublin, and MIE and Trinity work together on research and approaches to teaching. 

MIE now has more than 1300 students registered on our courses which include the Bachelor in Education degrees (Irish-medium and English-medium), the Bachelor in Science (Education Studies) degree, the Bachelor in Science (Early Childhood Education) degree, the International Foundation Programme, the Professional Masters in Education – Primary Teaching, five Masters in Education Studies courses (Intercultural Learning and Leadership, Early Childhood Education, Visual Arts, Inquiry-Based Learning and Leadership in Christian Education) and the Professional Diploma in Education (Further Education). 

We put student learning at the heart of our activities at MIE, and in response to the changing environment in which we live, we are committed to ensuring that student learning in and with the world is our priority. We want to prepare our students to have the agency and capacity to be sustainable learners, to be enablers of transformative education for others and to act as competent educators within a digital environment.  Our fabulous campus offers an attractive and inspirational environment for study, work, and for conference and training participants.

 Whether you are a current or prospective student, an educator, or interested in our education and conference services, I welcome you to our website and hope that you find it useful.
