The ComMUniversity programme provides an opportunity for adult learners to learn and discuss third level subjects through informal FREE weekly sessions which take place in a local library setting. It is a no pressure fun environment which has no exams or assignments. All you need is curiosity and a willingness to learn.

The programme is a three-way partnership which comprises Maynooth University, South Dublin County Partnership and South Dublin County Council Library Service. Its aim is to remove barriers to educational access thereby making third level education more accessible for adult learners.
