As part of Maynooth University’s Open Day on Saturday 1 April, the Department of Adult and Community Education will be holding a talk for adults thinking of returning to learning.

Dr. Derek Barter, the Continuing Education Co-ordinator, will talk about the BA Local Studies/Community Studies. But if you have questions before the event, read on…

Got questions about Adult and Community Education?

Adults returning to education can sometimes be at a loss as to where to begin. The following are some of the questions that people making enquiries about Maynooth University’s Continuing Education certificate and degree courses often ask:

  • Do I need a Leaving Cert? NO
  • Am I too old? NO
  • Am I too long out of education? NO
  • Are there exams? NO! Assessment YES but Exams NO.
  • Will I get study support? Yes.
  • How old do I have to be to take part in one of Maynooth University’s part-time courses as a mature student? For PART-TIME courses only you must be 21 years of age on 1 January 2017.
  • Do I have to fill out the CAO? Only for the BA in Local Studies/Community Studies but you don’t need to worry about points or exams, you just need to fill out the short personal statement and that’s all.

If you are considering returning to education, head along tomorrow and meet some of the Department’s staff and students who will be happy to answer any other questions that you may have. Alternatively, you can contact: Kay Loughlin on 01 708 4587 or Derek Barter on 01 708 3948 and they will help you.
