Consent Training

MU is committed to the development of an institutional campus culture which is safe, respectful and supportive. Prior to in-person registration at Maynooth, all incoming students are required to complete a mandatory workshop on consent. This training will provide you with knowledge and skills that will help you to keep yourself safe and enjoy your college experience. The workshop can be found on Moodle, Maynooth Virtual Learning Environment. It is available 24/7 once you have received your Maynooth login details.
