Technology Transition Programme

There are lots of new academic challenges that students face in college. The Maynooth University Access Programme runs the Technology Transition Programme which are 4 group class sessions designed to show students how to use technology to successfully take on the academic environment when starting in college.  Check out the workshops and sign up for the sessions that you're interested in attending. Your family members are welcome to join you at any of these sessions. You can see all of the available days in the timetable below and the times for each topic are as follows:
