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
This April, the Programme Advisory Office will host the Planning Ahead for Your Second Year and Beyond to help you prepare for the programme choices you will be asked to make at the beginning of second year and beyond. During the week, you can also attend sessions with Careers, Experiential Learning, Graduate Studies and International Office. There will also be information sessions with the Departments and Schools that allow students to transfer into them. For more details see the tab below.
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:
Academic Planning for Year 2
For more information on the 2nd year programme options please see: www.maynoothuniversity.ie/year2info
We are available to meet with students to discuss your programme and subject choices throughout the year.
At the start of term, we operate a drop-in service for students between 10am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
From October 12th 2018, you can book a one-to-one appointment with the Programme Advisor via our online booking system.
On behalf of the seminar organising team and all of us in the Office of the Dean of Teaching & Learning at Maynooth University, thank you for attending and participating in our National Forum Student Success Seminar, The Student Journey: Developing tools to Support Student success in Higher Education on February 28th.
