Maynooth University welcomes mature applicants and encourages their pursuit of study at the University. It greatly values the particular contribution of mature students to the academic and social environment of the University. Up to new mature students begin their studies here each year.
Mature applicantions will open from November 5th for all Maynooth University Courses. Please see the information below regarding courses that require an entrance test. Many of our mature entrants undertake preparatory studies in advance of gaining admission.
If you are aged 23 years or over, you are classified as a mature applicant. Applicants are judged on the results of The Assessment Test instead of their Leaving Certificate Exam or equivalent results. In addition, nurses and midwives understand that they are making a difference in the lives of the people they care for on a daily basis.
If you are at least 23 years of age on 1 January of the year you want to enter, you can apply on grounds of mature years. Full details of the application procedure, including Programme Specific Information, Access Routes and News can be found on the mature student application webpage. We encourage you to come along and explore the UCD campus and what it has to offer. The Open Day also gives you the opportunity to talk to academic staff from different areas of study as well as staff from the Access Centre and Admissions.
