Studying at Maynooth University this year

Our aim is to give you the best educational experience that we can in the upcoming semester.   We know that you value the interaction with lecturers and tutors, and the opportunity to share ideas with others in your class. While we will operate within restrictions designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we will be working to ensure that your educational experience is as close to normal as we can make it.

We would like to return to our normal operation as soon as possible so our aim is to have as much teaching on campus as public health measures allow.  And where we cannot teach on campus, we will work to use the technology to provide the best blended learning experience we can offer.

For information on how we will operate this year, please see our: Guide for students studying at Maynooth University in 2020-21 in response to Covid-19 . This will be updated from time to time, so please treat it as a working document.


The provisional timetable for semester one is now available to view on the University’s Timetable viewer:
This timetable shows the day, time and venue of modules which are centrally scheduled (some additional tutorial or practical classes may be scheduled for your programme by your academic department). Provisional timetable information can also be viewed in the description for each module on Coursefinder.

As always, the timetable is subject to change as the number of students registered for each module changes, and so you should expect some changes after the start of the semester.

A guide to time on-campus

In light of public health requirements, in some cases, you will need to attend campus on a rota basis – for this reason, you should refer to the Timetable Viewer for indication of the days and times, and read either the Time on Campus: Subject Guide for First Year Students or Expected on-campus teaching time for students (other than First year) for details of how you will be expected to attend campus.

Incoming First Years

The University issued Round 1 offers to first years through the CAO on Friday, September 11th, 2020.
