Placement- Enhancing Employability
The Placement Office at Maynooth University facilitates and manages the placement of MU students in the workplace to gain work experience as an accredited requirement of their degree. This is accomplished through the participation of Students, Faculty, and Employers. Throughout the placement period students will gain skills that connect with their course content and enhance their graduate employability.
The Maynooth University placement partners include Multinationals, Semi-State Bodies, Government Departments and International companies and Institutes. There is not one ‘fit for all’ solution when it comes to the placement of students, as there are various degree requirements and start dates throughout the academic year. The Placement Office are always open to working with new organisations, nationally and internationally, as it is imperative to offer our students the most rewarding experience possible. Our moto is we are “always open for business”.
Maynooth University Placement Office has offices in both the Arts Block and Rowan House. Due to COVID-19 we are working both onsite and remotely and will be employing Mircosoft Teams, email, and social media to stay in contact with students. All appointments will be virtual until further notice.
