Erasmus and Study Abroad Opportunities

Maynooth University works with over 150 prestigious international higher education institutions to welcome students, researchers and academics from all over the world, and to facilitate Maynooth University students to study abroad as part of their degree.

We collaborate with university partners in Europe, Asia, Australia and North and South America on student and staff Exchange Programmes, joint research projects and publications. 

We encourage all students to study abroad either within Europe (Erasmus programme) or beyond. Studying abroad helps students expand their intellectual horizons, is an exciting way to accelerate personal growth, and offers unique opportunities to experience a new country and culture, with support every step of the way.

Studying abroad also enhances future employment prospects in an increasingly global market, indicating transferable skills such as foreign language knowledge, independence, adaptability and communication skills. Some of the International Office team are available in the Live Q&A Partner Universities are listed here, so start thinking about where in the world Maynooth University can take you!
