Trinity College Dublin
Four centuries of scholarship on an iconic campus in the heart of the multicultural, buzzing, international city of Dublin await you!
Established in 1592 by Elizabeth I, Trinity College Dublin is ranked as Ireland’s #1 university, and its principles of research and academic freedom are upheld in all institutional endeavors. A highly ranked research university, Trinity is also the highest ranked university in Ireland for internationalization, with a diverse, friendly and welcoming student body of 17,000.
Trinity’s secluded walled campus provides the opportunity to step back in time, into its renowned Library with its world famous illuminated manuscript, The Book of Kells, folios from which are on view for visitors. You’ll sense the echoes of its many famous alumni, including the writers Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker, Samuel Beckett, and Jonathan Swift. More recently, the University boasted a joint winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine, William Campbell, in 2015.
Study abroad students at Trinity may choose from Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; Engineering, Mathematics and Science; the Business School, and Health Sciences. The program is open to Junior and Senior Level students with a strong academic background (3.5 for English, 3.1 all other departments).
Special Academic Opportunity: A three-week pre-session course, Understanding Ireland is available prior to the start of the fall semester, which focuses on several areas of Irish Studies.
Campus life revolves around the many sports, clubs and societies you can join, and the spirit of the city itself. Dublin is a young and vibrant, diverse and exciting city, with plenty of history, culture, literary haunts, pubs, restaurants, and nightlife, and easy transport access to the many areas of scenic beauty and cultural importance throughout Ireland, near and far -- as well as to Great Britain and continental Europe.
