Why study Education

We provide a series of courses aimed at aspiring education professionals and those already working in education.

The options for studying to become a teacher at Maynooth now span the full range of educational levels in Ireland – from early education, through primary and second level education as well as further and adult education.

Our small group teaching model, combined with ease of access to staff and student-support services, ensures that every student has the best possible chance of success. We are renowned for providing a holistic experience for students and it is for this reason that we have such high levels of retention and progression.

Career Opportunities

For those interested in becoming early childhood professionals, our parttime BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Teaching and Learning allows students to work and study simultaneously. If you are interested in primary teaching, the Bachelor of Education will prepare you to work as a primary school teacher. At Maynooth you get to study at the heart of a major university, where you can enjoy intellectual stimulus and social interaction with professors and students from other disciplines; the first time this was possible in Ireland.
