From October 12th 2018, you can book a one-to-one appointment with the Programme Advisor via our online booking system.
Welcome to Maynooth University! We are so delighted you chose to join us for your undergraduate studies.
Last year, we helped hundreds of new students, just like you, with their programme choices including questions like these:
- How do the Arts timetable groups work?
- Is it possible for me to take a particular combination of subjects?
- What will my options be for next year if I take this particular combination of subjects?
- I hope to transfer into second year a denominated programme next year; what subjects do I need to take?
- How do I know if I have to take particular subjects as part of my programme?
- I have changed my mind about a subject; what should I do now?
For more information about your first year programme choices please see: www.maynoothuniversity.ie/year1info
How we will help prepare you for the start of your academic journey with us:

Congratulations on passing your exams and progressing into the second year of your programme!
The introduction of the new Maynooth Curriculum in September 2016 has brought in greater flexibility for Maynooth students than ever before. As a second year student, you may now have the option of choosing your pathway: single major, double major, major with minor and/or the opportunity to take an elective module in an subject area of your choice.
The Programme Advisory Office hosted a series of information sessions in April 2018 for then first year students on how to plan ahead for studying at second year. These included information on programme options and choices available in 2nd year such as Flexible Pathways, Subject Choices and Electives. Here is a link to the Academc Planning presentation:
