Its distinctive features and character owe much to its unique history and heritage. Maynooth University was formally established as an autonomous university as recently as 1997, yet traces its origins to the foundation of the Royal College of St. Patrick in 1795, making it, simultaneously, Ireland’s youngest university and one of its oldest educational institutions.
We can achieve this transformative change in undergraduate education only because its guiding principles are so embedded in our ethos and practice as an institution, and only because of the strength of our existing curriculum, our forefront research and subject expertise, and the quality of our current student experience at Maynooth. While strengthening our curriculum to reflect contemporary needs, the reimagined Maynooth curriculum allows our students to do more of what Maynooth does best: complement deep knowledge of their subjects with a broad perspective, and learn how to think and work in a way that makes a real difference to the world around them.
Maynooth University is a research-intensive university and, as such, research and scholarship are fundamental to our mission: research contributes to the advancement of human knowledge and understanding, addresses major societal challenges, infuses our teaching and enthuses our students.
At Maynooth University, the Career Development Centre provides a service that is student-focussed, professional and informative. We are happy to assist you and work with you as you progress through the steps in discovering your career.

I loved my university. The lecturers were nothing but motivating and helped you in the strive for perfection.
Great experience on campus especially with my course department.
My hands on experience in Maynooth University was great. I got a lot of support and there was so much resources available to me as a student. However, I felt throughout Covid 19 that there was a lack of support and resources, which led me to do badly in my exams.
