About Maynooth's International Summer School Program
National University of Ireland, Maynooth traces its roots to the foundation of St. Patrick's College in 1795. In 1910, Maynooth became a recognized College of the National University of Ireland for the purpose of awarding degrees in Art, Science, Celtic Studies and Philosophy. Under the Universities Act (1997) it was established with full University status as the National University of Ireland, Maynooth. This is a program that gives students a packed non-academic schedule including on-clubs and society events with MU students, weekend day trips to world famous attractions, cultural and historical areas of interest across Ireland, introductory classes and workshops in Irish music, dance, sports and culture.
The University has long since expanded beyond its original role. It now has in excess of 5,000 students from all over Ireland and overseas. Academic developments include the introduction of new degree and diploma programs in Computer Science, Software Engineering, European Social Policy, Local History and combined History through French or German degrees.
