Building on our Strengths

We can achieve this transformative change in undergraduate education only because its guiding principles are so embedded in our ethos and practice as an institution, and only because of the strength of our existing curriculum, our forefront research and subject expertise, and the quality of our current student experience at Maynooth.  While strengthening our curriculum to reflect contemporary needs, the reimagined Maynooth curriculum allows our students to do more of what Maynooth does best: complement deep knowledge of their subjects with a broad perspective, and learn how to think and work in a way that makes a real difference to the world around them.

  • We will continue to give students great depth of knowledge in their chosen disciplines informed by the latest research and taught by internationally respected leaders in the field.
  • We will champion a balanced commitment to teaching and research as equally important aspects of the mission of the university.
  • We will continue to enhance our student experience, taking pride in the fact that Maynooth is rightly renowned for its inclusive and collegial campus community and its careful attention to the success of each individual student.
  • We will build upon our historic commitment to outstanding scholarship, teaching and learning to create an educational experience suited to the next generation of exceptional Maynooth graduates.
