Academics & Program

Maynooth University

Maynooth University is Ireland's second oldest university institution and traces its origins to the foundation of St. Patrick's College in 1795. Situated 25km west of Dublin, it is located in Ireland's only university town, Maynooth, which combines the historical legacy of its medieval origins with a present day location just outside Dublin city. Maynooth University has a long standing international reputation for learning and academic excellence in the sciences and humanities. Its traditional core strengths have been augmented by new courses in Finance, Computer Science, Software Engineering and Electronic Engineering. Its reputation for research continues to grow and today there are several renowned research centers located on campus.

Academic Highlights

Maynooth is committed to providing an environment within which students can learn, develop and mature. The focus is on ensuring that all students have an experience that will benefit them not just academically, but personally as well, and that the environment is truly student-friendly.
