Staff Support

Most teaching staff in Maynooth will have students supported by MAP in their class. MAP students include students with disabilities, mature students, students from the travelling community and students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. MAP stresses the importance of students being academically and practically prepared for the commitment to a three or four year course. In some cases staff may come across MAP students who are struggling with their studies.

Every academic department has a MAP Academic Advisor who is a link between the department and MAP on academic issues that students are experiencing.

This section also contains advice on best practice in inclusively teaching, assessing and supporting a diverse range of students at Maynooth.
