Provisionally, these scheduled tests will now take place on Saturday April 18th 2020. Venue and times will not change

Restricted application course – apply to the CAO by February 1st.

The Department of Applied Social Studies writes to applicants for MH116 and MH802 in March inviting them to attend a written assessment in Maynooth University on Saturday the 28th of March 2020.
