Study Abroad + Options
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Named after the ancient Irish god Nuadha, Maynooth was once Ireland's capital. Located just 30 minutes from Dublin city centre, today it is a small but thriving centre full of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. A university town, Maynooth is known for its warm and friendly nature and for welcoming newcomers from all over the world.
API students participate excursions designed to help familiarize them with the culture and surrounding areas of their host city and country. The following is a listing of potential excursions for API Dublin programs. API may need to modify the excursions offered in a given term due to travel restrictions or health and safety concerns.
TOTAL CREDITS - 5-7 semester credits
Students who want to study abroad in Dublin should consider looking a little outside of the city at the charming Irish town of Maynooth!
This six-week summer program presents the best of both worlds – the opportunity to live and study in Ireland’s only university town in a rural setting while being only a half-hour away from the hustle and bustle of Dublin. Maynooth University's tailored international summer school offers students the chance to gain credit and enjoy classes with experienced and enthusiastic instructors, while also experiencing life in an Irish town located in the heart of Europe. All courses include trips to visit sites, institutions, and companies relevant to the course material, and all classes are fully accredited and carry Maynooth University transcripts.
API students receive their transcript from Maynooth University (formerly known as the National University of Ireland, Maynooth) upon completion of the program.

Students in the Engineering and Computer Science program at Maynooth University will choose two courses: one from Stream A and one from Stream B1 or B2. Please note that no Stream B2 classes are available during weeks 1 and 2.
Classes are taught across the 6-week duration of the program and are worth either 5, 7.5, or 10 ECTS credits each.
API partner universities in Ireland operate on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). It is generally accepted that in order to convert from ECTS to U.S. semester credits, one should divide the ECTS total by 2, whereby most courses are worth 3 U.S. semester credits.
