At the beginning of the second semester, you may have an opportunity to request to change your subject registration. If you are eligible to request a change, you will receive an email from Student Records on or after January 15th 2020 with information about the First Year Second Semester Subject Change Request Process. You can read more about the First Year Second Semester Subject Change Request Process on the Year1 Info webpage.
While this may be helpful for some, this is a serious decision as it restricts your progression options and may result in having to repeat the year.

See your options below to find out more about the First Year Second Semester Subject Change Request:
The Programme Advisory Office will host an information session about the Second Semester Subject Change Request Process on Wednesday, February 5th at 1pm in Room SE128 (School of Education Building).
The best way to get in contact with the Programme Advisory Office at this time is to email your questions to email@example.com. (We do receive lots of emails at this time of year so it may take up to five working days to respond to your email, but will we!)
One to one Appointments:
From January 15th to 31st, you can book an appointment to meet with the Programme Advisor to discuss your request via our online booking system.
Drop In Times:
During week one and two of the new semester, we will have Drop In times for students. Details of these times will be posted here at the beginning of the semester.
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
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.
Last April, the Programme Advisory Office hosted 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. The week included presentations from Careers, Experiential Learning, Graduate Studies and International Office. There were also information sessions with the Departments and Schools that allow students to transfer into them. Please see the tab below for all the presentations.
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.
Our Drop In Centre was open every day from Sept 12th to October 5th between 10am and 5pm.
From October 7th 2019, you can book a one-to-one appointment with the Programme Advisor via our online booking system.
