Program Overview

Program Description:
Trinity College Dublin offers a wide variety of challenging courses and appeals primarily to those students who are ready for the challenge of adapting to an entirely new academic culture that requires significant independent work.

You start off your semester with TCD's Semester Start-Up Program (SSP), of the School of Histories and Humanities. The SSP provides you with a set curriculum, Understanding Ireland: An Interdisciplinary Module in History, Archaeology, Art, Architecture, and Literature. The SSP covers approximately 2.5 credits in the fall term and you complete the remaining two-thirds of your credit through standard undergraduate courses. The five-day spring semester Start-Up Program does not carry credit. Academic Year students do not enroll in the Semester Start-Up Program; they take a full course load and earn all of their credits from the standard undergraduate curriculum. You take 15-19 credits per semester.

Stroll around Dublin to see how the historic architecture blends with modern design. Enjoy the energetic music scene and lively theatre. And when you need to get away, you’ll discover outdoor adventures just a short train or bus ride away.

    I have nothing but great things to say about my program in Dublin. IES organized housing for the students; I lived with four other girls in a comfortable apartment in Ballsbridge (a safe neighborhood about 10 minutes from Trinity College). Aside from

    IES staff was very helpful - they brought me to the hospital when I sprained my wrist. I got to live with other students on my program, so it was nice to have the IES community within the community at Trinity. The academics at Trinity were wonderful.
