It is an online application process. Please note that you will have to submit the following:

  • Completed online application form
  • Documents (which may be uploaded with your application form):

    • Photograph
    • Official transcripts of undergraduate work (you may upload copies with your online application but you will still need to send us original certified copies in the post)
    • Official GMAT result (or supply us with your test date and we can download this directly)
    • Official IELTS or TOEFL result (if English is not your native language)
    • Three essays
    • CV / Resume

  • Two confidential references via the online application system – you will be asked to provide the referees' email addresses and an automated form will be sent directly to them for completion. It will be your responsibility to ensure that they are completed in time.
  • Please note that there is an application fee of €40 payable online

We invite all applicants who pass the initial review stage of the application process to attend an interview at Trinity. Telephone interviews will be arranged for applicants who live abroad.

Application Deadline:

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. As we deliberately keep our class size small (between 30 and 40 students) we strongly recommend early application. Applications are reviewed regularly and you can expect to receive feedback within 2 to 3 weeks.

Application Queries:

If you have any queries about the application process, please contact Aoife Fitzpatrick by email at or by phone at +353-1-8962338.
