Hear what our students have to say about our courses:
Return to Learning
"The course totally fulfilled my needs, so much so, that it has had a life changing experience on me. I have been accepted as a mature student on the BA Arts Degree Programme, commencing this September, and this has opened up a whole new and exciting world. I never would have considered doing this if I had not attended the Return to Learning Course.
Brenda Farrell
Addiction Studies
"I felt that I was on a personal journey of challenging myself and my opinions and I strongly believe that this course helped me gain a better insight into this illness. I never called it an illness before so that in itself was a break through.

Community Development and Leadership
I returned to learning by taking part in the Community Development and Leadership Certificate course in Leixlip it was the best move I have made as it opened up a whole new world to me. I have since completed my first yearof the BA in Community Studies in Maynooth. Returning to learning can be daunting but the support from tutors, the Adult Education Department, Library staff and most importantly your fellow students is wonderful." 
Anne Marie O Reilly
"The best thing I ever did for my confidence was to participate in a Psychology Course run by Maynooth University. I will admit I found it very daunting in the beginning especially the writing of essays and research proposals as I completed my Leaving Certificate in 1978. The encouragement given to us by our tutors is excellent and the sense of achievement felt when the course is completed is terrific. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner"
