Student Vetting

Why are some students Garda Vetted?
​Maynooth University offers a number of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that require students to undertake placements with external agencies which will bring them into contact with the public and in which they will assume positions of trust.

To ensure the protection of the public, and justify public trust and confidence, the University is committed to ensuring that only suitable candidates are allowed to undertake these programmes.

Maynooth University uses the National Vetting Bureau eVetting service to assess the suitability of such applicants, and may also require applicants to provide an enhanced disclosure through the completion of an affidavit at the time of registration.
