Hear from Trinity students

Tess 2018

“I would highly recommend Trinity College Dublin as a place to study abroad. I enjoyed my time there incredibly so and even considered extending the time I planned study there. The campus is gorgeous. The academics were challenging and engaging. Students were very friendly. And Dublin is an incredible city to live and study in!
Future participants should know that logistics such as course selection and credit transfer is quite tedious and completed very slowly at Trinity, but is worth that hassle.
Post- study abroad in Dublin, I had a more significant culture shock trying to adjust back to my regular life at school in California because I continuously compare it to my life in Dublin which seemed exponentially more intellectually and socially stimulating. My favorite memory is intensely writing final papers for hours in the Trinity library and then taking a break to grab a pint casually with friends at the pub across the street or at the Pav and then going back to the library to continue writing.”
