Why choose this degree?As an undergraduate, you will study a four-year Science degree, while also completing 60 credits in Education.After four years you are awarded a BSc Mathematics (with Education) degree – a level 8 honours degree.

You now have two pathways open to you.

  • You can choose to exit your studies with your level 8 qualification and take a different path in your education or career.
  • You can continue with your studies to become a fully qualified teacher. This means you complete one further year of study at postgraduate level - required in order to meet the Teaching Council requirements to be registered as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) in two subjects. Having graduated with your Level 8 BSc Mathematics (with Education) degree, you are guaranteed your place in this postgraduate year. At the end of year five of your studies, you will be a fully qualified secondlevel mathematics and applied mathematics teacher. Through this pathway you are fully qualified after five years rather than taking the six year route (details of the six-year route are outlined in the next bullet point above).


Graduates of Mathematics with Education programme from Maynooth University will be qualified to teach mathematics and applied mathematics up to Leaving Certificate Higher Level. Graduates apply to the Teaching Council of Ireland for registration.

  • After four years of concurrent Mathematics and Education studies, students may graduate with a Level 8 honours degree in Mathematics (with Education)
