FYSA at Maynooth Program Overview Heading Banner

Study abroad in Ireland at one of UNCW’s valued and trusted partner universities. Take classes that will fulfill UNCW graduation requirements. Maynooth offers an ideal campus and program for students just beginning their college education. The university is located in a very safe, beautiful, walkable university town, a short distance and easy commute on public transportation to Dublin. The campus is one of the most attractive in Ireland, with a twelfth century castle at the gate and a combination of historic, picturesque quadrangles, and new state-of-the-art library, science laboratory, and lecture/seminar buildings on the more modern side of campus. The academic program is rigorous, but the faculty are extremely helpful and very available.

Ireland is the perfect destination for one's first study abroad experience. They speak English and live up to their reputation for being friendly. Within Ireland, Maynooth has the national reputation for being the friendliest, most welcoming campus, with the strongest sense of community. Here's a map of campus! You may want to start familiarizing yourself with the names of buildings. In a few months, you could be having classes there.

A pre-departure orientation will take place online for all participants.
