Undergraduate Overview

A Maynooth Education helps students become active participants in designing their education and supports them to achieve the high standards expected of a Maynooth graduate. The added flexibility is facilitated in part by restructuring and eventually reducing our CAO entry routes to approximately 35, allowing students to specialise either immediately or over time so they make the best choice for their future.

Key components include:

  • Innovative teaching and assessment that challenges students to analyse, reflect, think critically, communicate clearly and work in teams
  • A unique first year programme that combines lectures with small group learning to support students’ transition to university
  • Fewer and simpler entry CAO entry routes, making choices easier and allowing students to specialise either immediately or over time
  • Greater flexibility and choice, with the ability to take major and minor options within most degrees
  • New and interesting subject combinations, including more opportunities to combine subjects across the arts and sciences
  • Ability to pursue a modern language alongside any degree   
  • Elective options outside a student’s core discipline
  • Extensive opportunities to learn outside the classroom through accredited co-curricular activities such as work placement, volunteering, or study abroad
  • Electronic portfolios to capture students’ cumulative achievements over the course of their degree
