Trinity College Open Day.

Interested in doing a physics degree? We offer courses in:

  • Physics
  • Nanoscience
  • Physics and Astrophysics
  • Theoretical Physics

Hoping to come to Trinity in 2018? Want to learn more?
Then come to the Trinity Open Day on Saturday, 9 December 2017 from 9.00 am - 3.30 pm and join us in our historic Fitzgerald Building!


There will be opportunities to meet physics professors and current students. You can take a lab tour to the next door SNIAM building to visit see our state-of-the-art experimental and computational teaching laboratories. There are also a series of the talks on physics and the courses on offer at Trinity College.

Maths Physics Open Day (MPOD)

The Maths and Physics Open Day takes place every year in early November. The day features lectures and tours along with a chance to meet staff and students from both the School of Physics and the School of Mathematics and deals with the same courses as the Trinity College Open Day.
