Maynooth University

About MU

Maynooth University offers the best of both worlds to students, boasting innovative

degree programmes, world-class teaching facilities and a tradition of academic

excellence since 1795. From three academic faculties – Arts, Celtic Studies and

Philosophy; Social Sciences; Science and Engineering – students can choose

programmes from undergraduate to doctorate level in a broad range of disciplines

including arts and humanities, music, education, law, business, media studies,

climatology, science, engineering and computer science.

Ireland’s fastest growing university, with over 10,000 students; Maynooth is the first

university outside of North America to be included in the Princeton Review’s “Best

Colleges” guidebook, the decisive resource used by students in the USA when selecting

the university which will provide the best fit for their academic and personal

development. The University is also in the Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 and

maintains a record for the highest research income per academic and the most

successful commercialisation of research projects among the Irish Universities.

The University is located in the beautiful, historic town of Maynooth, just 15 miles west

of Dublin city centre and adjacent to Ireland’s “silicon valley”, maintaining strong links

with Intel, HP and other giants of industry. MU’s location gives it a unique character

among the Irish universities, and has contributed to the development of a strong sense

of community both within the college and in its relationship with the surrounding area.
