Trinity College Dublin, located in the heart of Dublin city, is steeped in scholarly and national history. Today it remains Ireland’s highest ranked university and within the world’s top one hundred. TCD provides an excellent variety of courses throughout areas in the Arts and Humanities, Business, Law, Engineering, Science and Health Sciences.

Over 17,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students from Ireland and across the world attend the illustrious university. And there is a good reason for the huge attraction to Trinity as it has produced some of the world’s greatest minds such as Samuel Becket, Oscar Wilde and former Irish president, Mary Robinson. Trinity College Dublin prides itself on continuing this tradition by offering the finest third level education to students and propel them onto becoming the next great leader, writer, artist, scientist and most importantly, thinker.

Along with TCD’s grand selection of on campus undergraduate and postgraduate courses, the university also provides Online Education and CPD programmes. Prosperous students can apply for Free Online Courses now as the Department of Online Education in 2016 have teamed with Futurelearn to issue three major free online courses – (MOOCS) in Irish History, Successful Ageing and Exercise Prescription. This allows students who might be working full-time or at a geographical disadvantage to attend Trinity College Dublin virtually.

Situated on College Green, Trinity is close to all the vibrant culture and entertainment Ireland’s capital has to offer. Museums, galleries, restaurants, live music, cinema are all walking distance from the beautiful campus grounds. Public transport to anywhere in the country surrounds the university, allowing students to take a break from study to explore Ireland and enrich their life experience. Not to mention the tremendous historical aura within Trinity itself, most notably the Book of Kells. TCD provides the best opportunities for students for their future careers and worldview.
