The University
 
The Kilkenny Campus of NUI Maynooth has been offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses for adult students from Kilkenny and the south east for thirteen years.
As well as the flagship part-time BA courses in Local Studies and in Community Studies the Campus offers a range of Certificates and Diplomas. All of our courses are offered on a part-time basis. Most of the courses will run one evening a week over the academic year.  Some of these courses will have occasional weekend attendance.
The Campus provides a friendly learning environment for the adult student with excellent library facilities, coffee dock, on site parking and a new IT room, video conferencing facilities and plenty of support and encouragement from staff and students.
Currently, there are almost 220 registered NUI Maynooth students pursuing various courses in Kilkenny. Approximately one third of these students are undertaking the B.A. (Local / Community Studies), a part-time modular degree specifically designed to facilitate participation by adult learners. In former years we have also offered the Diploma in Community and Youth Work and the Higher Diploma in Information and Communication Technology in Education at the Campus, as well as various NUI Certificate courses from the University's Continuing Education programme.
In the early years of the Campus, students who completed courses received their awards in Maynooth. Since 2002, however, an annual Conferring and Presentation of Awards ceremony has been held in Kilkenny castle, underlining the University's commitment to the city and to the hinterland which it serves.
Kilkenny Campus has close links with the parent campus at Maynooth, working closely with all relevant departments but especially with the Department of Adult and Community Education. Maeve O'Byrne, our Development Officer is currently the acting Head of Campus while other members of staff include a full-time Programme Manager, full-time Librarian and part-time receptionist and 2 part-time library staff .

The City
 
Situated within an easy commute to Dublin, the capital and largest city in Ireland, Maynooth is Ireland's only university town. It combines the historical legacy of its medieval origins with a present day location on the fringes of Dublin. 
Maynooth town traces its historical significance back to the 12th century when the Fitzgerald family established a stronghold, in the form of a castle which can still be seen at the gates of the University. The local area surrounding Maynooth is rich with historical significance, through Carton House and Demesne, Castletown House and Leixlip Castle, home to the Guinness family. There are several historical monuments dating from the time of the Great Famine of Ireland in the local area.
Today Maynooth is a charming and busy town with many shops, cafes, public transport options and general services, and home to a vibrant local community that offers students abundant opportunities to enjoy a very enjoyable social life. Click here to find out information on getting to Maynooth.

Maynooth’s location is also adjacent to the Irish ‘silicon valley’, home to the European and International headquarters of many multi-national companies, such as Intel, HP, Facebook, Microsoft and Google. The university has strong connections with several multinational companies, providing opportunities for guest speakers, seminars and work placements for NUIM students.
