Established in 1592, Trinity College offers world-class academics on a beautiful 40-acre walled campus right in the heart of Dublin. Though in the middle of a bustling city, the campus remains peaceful and serene with its cobbled-stone squares, lush gardens and parks.
Trinity offers a wide range of course offerings in the humanities and social sciences, business and economics, science and engineering, and health sciences. As Ireland's oldest university, it is an icon of Dublin's history. Visitors from around the world marvel at the campus' rich mix of architecture (which spans nearly three centuries) and its massive library, which is home to the world-famous Book of Kells, a richly ornate manuscript of the Gospels composed during the 9th century. You’ll also find an Irish Harp (c 15th Century) and a copy of the 1916 Proclamation of the Irish Republic in the Old Library (c 1712).
Outside of the classroom, you'll find many opportunities to become immersed in campus life. You'll be invited to join any of more than 90 student societies that cater to a wide range of interests including sports and recreation, arts, politics, religion and culture. What's more, you'll be able to take advantage of the variety of concerts, recitals and art exhibitions hosted by Trinity.
Finally, you'll appreciate that Trinity's range of athletic facilities and sports programs accommodate all levels of skill-whether you have a passion for serious competition or want to enjoy noncompetitive fun and recreation.
