The highlight of my time at Maynooth was the fantastic people in the University - inspiring lecturers, hardworking tutors and caring support staff. They made the Maynooth Experience for me.

The family-like feel to the campus. The difference between the old and the new and the strong sense of community. These all make Maynooth what it is.

The skills of communication, leadership and teamwork that I learnt and developed from my four years in Maynooth have been the major cause of success in my career to date.

Do it! It is a fantastic course with challenging assignments, interesting lecturers and great career opportunities.
