Thousands of students from all over Ireland descended on Trinity College Dublin to explore the wide range of undergraduate courses on offer during the Trinity Open Day.  Held across the College’s city centre campus on Saturday December 7th, the Trinity Open Day offered secondary school students and their families, mature students, teachers and guidance counsellors an opportunity to gain a real insight into student life at Trinity. 

Over the course of the day, the College’s academic staff gave 176 presentations and interactive demonstrations and were on hand to answer all questions relating to courses in the faculties of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; Engineering, Mathematics and Science; and Health Sciences

Current students were also on hand to lend some practical advice to prospective students, give tours of the College’s state of the art Sports Centre, science laboratories and libraries, and share their experiences of life at Trinity. 

Information sessions on various aspects of the Trinity Access Programmes were held to encourage students from socio-economic groups currently under represented in the Irish third level sector to consider further education at Trinity College.  There was also a special presentation for mature students, teachers, guidance counsellors and parents as well as information about support services for students with disabilities.  The College’s Accommodation Office was on hand to answer questions relating to Trinity Hall, the recommended accommodation choice for all first years and new entrants to Trinity College Dublin.

In addition, there were presentations on the Feasibility Study in Admissions. The new admissions route will be used to admit students on three courses – with ten places in History (TR003), ten places in Law (TR004), and five places in Ancient and medieval history and culture (TR028) filled using the new admissions routes.

Coordinated by Trinity’s Admissions Office, the Trinity Open Days aim to give students an in-depth knowledge of the College’s academic, social and cultural offerings.  Brochures of the undergraduate courses available to students at Trinity College Dublin, information on student life at Trinity and a full event guide for Open Day can be downloaded from the College’s website.
