National University of Ireland Maynooth

The National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUI Maynooth) is internationally recognised for quality and value of our research and scholarship and our dedication and commitment to teaching and our students.

While formally established as an autonomous university in 1997, NUI Maynooth traces its origins to the foundation of the Royal College of St.Patrick in 1795, drawing inspiration from a heritage that includes over 200 years of education and scholarship. The University is a place of lively contrasts. It is a modern institution, dynamic, rapidly-growing, research-led and engaged, yet grounded in historic academic strengths and scholarly traditions.

The humanities, social sciences and natural sciences form the academic and intellectual core of the University, complemented by strong departments and programmes in teacher education, computer science and electronic engineering, business and law.
