Dublin, Ireland: Maynooth University – Semester Course Offerings

At Maynooth University, classes or courses are called “modules.” An undergraduate degree program is called a “course.”

Most modules are worth 5 ECTS or approximately 3 semester credits. Students can enroll in anywhere between 24 and 35 ECTS per semester – or, between 12 and 18 U.S. semester credits.

All students MUST have a total of 8 modules approved by their home institution, in case of changes in module availability. That way, if a module is full or cancelled, or if 2 of the modules you want to take meet at the same time, you’ll already have back-ups that you know your school will accept. When you pre-register for modules (this happens after you’re accepted), you will have to list a total of 8 possible modules on your registration form, in order of preference. Maynooth University will not process your registration unless you list a total of 8 modules.

  1. Click on the Subject Area you are interested in.
  2. Click the “Link” for the module you are interested in.
  3. The top of the module description will tell you:  1) when the course is offered, 2) how many credits it is worth, and 3) whether or not it is open to international students.
  4. Please note! Semester 1 = Fall.  Semester 2 = Spring. Classes marked “Semester 1 and 2” are year-long classes and may only be taken if you are studying at Maynooth for the full academic year.
  5. Please note! The number of credits given does NOT designate U.S. credits. They are ECTS credits.  To calculate the approximate number of U.S. semester credits, multiply the number of ECTS credits by 0.5 and round to the nearest whole number.  Example: 5 ECTS = 3 U.S. semester credits.
  6. If the module is open to international students, you will see a green check mark next to “International.”
  7. Course codes beginning with 1, 2, or 3 (e.g. AN151, AN237, AN314) are generally open to undergraduate students. Course codes beginning with 6, 7, or 8 (e.g. AN652, AN862) are post-graduate modules that ARE NOT open to undergraduate students.
  8. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to ensure you have the necessary pre-requisites or co-requisites as shown in the module description.  Please read module descriptions carefully. Maynooth University will not let you take a module if you do not have the necessary pre-requisites/co-requisites. If you are unsure whether you have the necessary pre-requisites/co-requisites, please contact ASA at 617-327-9388.
