The Trinity application for undergraduates from the US is a lot like the common application.It’s all online and designed for American applicants, so you can use your SAT, ACT, AP and IB scores to apply.You’ll have a much better chance of getting in if you meet all of these requirements.
The most important thing to remember about choosing a course is to pick something you genuinely enjoy, don’t pick something just because you think it’ll get you a job.
You’ll be happier and do better in a subject you truly like.
The course you pick now will decide what you study for the next four years and beyond, but don’t let that scare you.
Picking your course is also the most exciting part of the process and will benefit you loads in the long run by giving you a much more in depth education than you would get in the US.
The school "really holds you to a higher standard" so self-motivation is key, and "the teachers don't baby [students].
You are expected to be responsible for your own study." "Your job is to be a university student and to do it well," says another student.However, if help is needed then teachers are "extremely good at helping you outside class hours.Just email them and they will arrange a time to meet." The scene here is "more like a master's program in the states, but with [student] societies that are given millions of euros to make sure you have fun and opportunities." There is always room for discussion in lectures, and "classes tend to be really interactive so students aren't just sitting there passively learning." Many do feel that there could "be a slicker process administratively," particularly with regard to registration and exams.If you’re unsure about exactly what you want to do there’s many broad courses like PPES, BESS, or Science that start out with classes in lots of different subjects and get more specific as you figure out what you like and don’t like.If you really like two different things there’s TSM, two subject moderatorship, which is like a double major where you can combine two subjects like English and History or Math and Psychology.The libraries "own an incredibly broad selection of works between them," and are "absolutely incredible both in selection of books, and space to study." On top of the very active clubs and societies, a great strength is the "small tutorials that correspond with lectures," as well the "great speakers giving talks on a weekly basis." This "self-motivated, tightly knit intellectual community of a huge variety of students" is composed of "bright inquisitive minds" who tend to be "trendy and intelligent and well-travelled and somewhat well-off." The vast majority come from Ireland, and since "there's literally a niche or society for everyone to fit in, all varieties of personality interact agreeably." "There are a lot of sociable societies which are easy to join and they generally welcome you with open arms," says a biochemistry major.Ireland is a small country, so "often students know each other from school before coming to Trinity." It's "a self-contained university world, bang-smack in Dublin's city centre," acting as "an island all to itself." The legendary front entrance "looks damn good" to all ye who enter here, and passing through the gothic arches "[is] like [entering] a calm academic hub within a busy city." In fact, those who live on campus "practically have their own world if they so desire, as it is so selfcontained." In general, people are "fairly studious and interested in their course, [but] they make room in their schedule for partying though as well." Students have great choice for meeting people and fitting in with a large number of societies, which "are inclusive and social, [and] all are catered for in the vast smorgasbord of college life." The annual Trinity ball is "an amazing event, Europe's largest private party." Alcohol forms part of college life (there is even a college bar, the Pav, "overlooking the cricket pitch"), and "outside of society events it is by far the most common social activity." However, by the time exams roll around in May, everyone is "all about cramming into the library and getting to work."
