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.

Course Offerings

Maynooth University offers a suite of selective programs across the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics and the Sciences. Please visit the website for a full list of the exciting options open to study abroad students. Study abroad students can also take bespoke certificate programs across a range of topics as diverse as Conflict Resolution, Health Cultures, International Business, Law, European Studies and Irish Cultural Heritage.

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.

The ongoing investment in programme development and the provision of world-class teaching and research facilities, is one part of the equation. Another equally important part is the ongoing investment in student social and recreational facilities, combined with comprehensive student support services (to include a Buddy Progamme).
