The Maynooth University International Office (IO) reviews all Non-EU students applications.
All applicants must provide written evidence of competency in the English language. Documentation should be uploaded to PAC (the online application centre).
The list below outlines the minimum standards in English language which must be met for admission to the University:
ENGLISH LANGUAGE COMPETENCY (FOR NON-NATIVE SPEAKERS OF THE ENGLISH
IELTS (www.ielts.org) 6.5 overall
585 (Paper based test)
95 (Internet based test)

If a student does not satisfy the above English language requirements the student should be directed to the International Office for advice.
A report on the academic evaluation and the English language competency is included in the student’s application on PAC. International students can only be given an offer when the IO has reviewed the application. If the IO does not recommend making an offer, an applicant can not be accepted. Students requiring visas should be accepted by end of July to enable visa application and to allow the IO sufficient time to write offer letters for immigration purposes. A department cannot supply this letter. The IO is not notified regarding the immigration status of students, rather the student is notified directly.
