Dublin, Ireland: Maynooth University – Summer Course Offerings

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

Students will take 2 modules per summer session. Classes are held for 4 hours a day, Monday through Thursday. Number of credits per module is noted with the listing. Modules in the Maynooth Summer Program are split into two streams. This is done for scheduling purposes, so students may not enroll in two modules within the same stream. When looking at the course offerings, students must select one module from Stream A and one module from Stream B.

All students MUST get a total of 4 modules approved by their academic advisor, in case of changes in module availability. 2 modules from Stream A (your first choice and an alternate) as well as two modules from Stream B (your first choice and an alternate) must be approved. This way, if a module is full or cancelled, you’ll already have back-ups that you know your school will accept for credit. When you pre-register for modules (this happens after you’re accepted), you will have a total of 4 possible modules on your registration form, in order of preference. Maynooth University will not process your registration unless you list a total of 4 modules.

Maynooth University typically offers the following modules  during the summer session. Module offerings are subject to change. Module descriptions can be found here under the “Learning” tab.
