The Kilkenny Campus of NUI Maynooth has been offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses for adult students from Kilkenny and the south east for seventeen years.
The Campus offers a range of part-time Certificates and Diplomas to adult students. All such 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 students with excellent library facilities, coffee dock, on site parking and IT rooms, video conferencing facilities and plenty of support and encouragement from staff and students.
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 .
Since its establishment, Kilkenny Campus has also been privileged to play a part in the cultural life of Kilkenny through various events and activities.
We are centrally located just off the ring road in Kilkenny with easy access from the M9 motorway. Our students come from all over the county as well as from Carlow, Kildare, Laois, Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford.
