Dublin offers an ideal combination of new and old, ancient and contemporary, trendy and timeless. In Ireland, you'll never run short of things to explore.

Academics

Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin, is one of Europe’s most renowned and historic universities. Founded in 1592, Trinity is Ireland’s most prestigious university and is a centre of teaching and research excellence. Courses at Trinity offer experiential learning opportunities, small-group work, tutorials, seminars and access to our Professors, who are both approachable and experts in their fields. Hailed as Ireland’s top university, Trinity remains at the cutting edge of research, technology and innovation and offers students unparalleled academic, professional and social opportunities for growth and development. Trinity’s international reputation for academic excellence is just one of the many reasons why study abroad students choose Ireland’s leading university again and again.

Trinity College Dublin offers students the opportunity to take classes (known as modules at Trinity) throughout the three faculties at Trinity. Module enrollment does not occur until students arrive on campus, but students must apply to Schools and Departments when they apply for admission. Students can view all of the modules available to study abroad students here.Information on what modules are available and how to sign up for classes can be found in the Trinity Module Directory.

Students take 30 ECTS per semester at Trinity. ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) is a credit weighting, so the number of modules (classes) a student takes at Trinity varies on the credit values for each of their modules, which usually have a 5, 10 or 15 ECTS value. 

Eligibility:

For Princeton approval, participants must have at least a 3.0/ B average for the fall and spring semesters prior to the semester of study abroad. For TCD approval, students must have a 3.3 GPA.
