Overview

Maynooth University is internationally recognised for the quality and value of our research and scholarship, and our dedication and commitment to teaching and our students.

Part of the NUI and formally established as an autonomous university in 1997, Maynooth University traces its origins to the foundation of the Royal College of St. Patrick in 1795, drawing inspiration from a heritage that includes over 200 years of education and scholarship. The University is a place of lively contrasts. It is a modern institution, dynamic, rapidly-growing, research-led and engaged, yet grounded in historic academic strengths and scholarly traditions.

The humanities, social sciences and natural sciences form the academic and intellectual core of the University, complemented by strong departments and programmes in teacher education, computer science and electronic engineering, business and law.  Maynooth has an international reputation for research in humanities; social and spatial sciences; mathematics, communication and computation; and  human health. Maynooth is an engaged university, making significant contributions to social, cultural and economic development at local, regional and national levels. 

Comprising more than 12,500 students and 900 staff from more than 20 countries, the University is located in the historic town of Maynooth, 25 km from Dublin.
