About Trinity College Dublin:


Academic Program
The program begins with an orientation in Dublin. Trinity College Dublin assigns credits based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), where courses weigh 5 ECTS or 10 ECTS. A full semester course load at Trinity College must total 30 ECTS to earn 4.0 Pomona credits.
Trinity College accepts students by department. Students may select one to three departments and indicate which courses they wish to take.
The English and History departments may have limited spaces, and students must be declared English majors to enroll in English courses. Students must select departments in which they have completed coursework at Pomona.
Chemistry courses are only available to academic year students, and are not an available option for single semester students.
Computer Science and Engineering courses are only available to spring semester or academic year students, due to the examination schedule.
Students are required to take at least one, preferably two, upper-level (Sophister) courses. Students should bear in mind that most Sophister-level courses have prerequisites and admission to particular courses is contingent on approval by the relevant Trinity College department, based on the applicant’s background and experience.
During the fall program, Pomona students are required to enroll in the Trinity Semester Start-Up Program. This three-week course focuses on Irish Studies and earns 5 ECTS. Students enroll in three to five Trinity College courses to earn the remaining 25 ECTS. 

Living Arrangements
Arcadia students at Trinity College live in Arcadia-provided flats in residential neighborhoods south of the city center. Most flats accommodate three to five students in doubles, with a kitchen and living area. The accommodations are self-catered, and Pomona will provide a meal allowance.

Number of Students
Arcadia enrolls approximately 30 students, selected from a national pool. University enrollment is approximately 13,000 students.
