Maynooth University students who wish to study abroad in Asia, Australia, North or South America as part of their degree may apply to study abroad on an exchange programme with any of Maynooth University's partner universities. All students are encouraged to study abroad as part of their degree at MU.

In previous years Maynooth students have studied all over the world, Sydney, Guadalajara, Boston, New Orleans, Kentucky, Toronto, Montreal, and many more. Studying abroad enriches a students' education as well as expanding their knowledge and increasing their opportunities for the future. Maynooth students who study abroad as part of their degree graduate with an International degree. 

When you study abroad at one of MU’s partner universities on an exchange programme, you do not have to pay any tuition fees to your host university, though you may be required to pay a small registration or student service fee. You will be required to continue to pay your normal registration fees to MU as your home institution during the study period abroad. You will still need to register as normal with MU even though you will be studying abroad, and you can do this online.
