In an increasingly global market, employers are looking to hire people who are familiar with other cultures, languages and countries.
At Maynooth University all students have an opportunity to study abroad, either for a full academic year, (thereby graduating with an international degree),or for a semester during their degree.
Maynooth University has connections with almost 200 universities in Europe, Asia, Australia, and North & South America. Each academic department has an International Coordinator who works closely with the university’s International Office to provide support to students who wish to study abroad during their degree.
