Incoming Visiting and Exchange Students

philo

The Department of Philosophy warmly welcomes international visiting students who may be attending Trinity College for just one semester, or a full academic year. Such students may take any module from the Junior Freshman (JF) and/or Senior Freshman (SF) years. Under special circumstances, and with the proper background in philosophy and the approval of the Philosophy Visiting Student Coordinator, courses from the Junior Sophister (JS) and/or Senior Sophister (SS) years may be selected.

Prospective Visiting Students

Further details on how to apply to come to Trinity as a visiting student are available from the University's International Admissions Desk. Any queries about course options may be directed to the Philosophy Visiting Student Coordinator, Professor Alice Pinheiro Walla (email).
