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 must take 2 modules per summer session. Classes are held for 4 hours a day, Monday through Thursday. Number of ECTS credits per module, as well as the approximate equivalent U.S. credits, are noted next to the module title.

Modules in the Maynooth Summer Program are split into two streams. This is done for scheduling purposes, so students will take one module from Stream A and one module from Stream B. Students may not enroll in two modules within the same stream.

All students MUST get A TOTAL OF 4 MODULES approved by their home institution, in case of changes in module availability. You must have 2 modules from Stream A approved (your first choice and an alternate) and two modules from Stream B approved (your first choice and an alternate). This way, if a module is full or cancelled, you’ll already have back-ups that 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.

MODULE OFFERINGS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Module descriptions can be found here under the “Learning” tab.
