Trinity Access Programmes (TAP)

Trinity College provides a number of initiatives to increase the participation at third level of prospective students whose social, economic and educational experiences have prevented them from realising their full academic potential.  Three application routes are available:

  • Higher Education Access Route (HEAR)

    Places are available for Leaving Certificate pupils from schools affiliated to third level access programmes.
  • TAP foundation course for young adults

    This one-year course aims to equip students with the skills they will need to benefit from and participate in a third-level education course. It is open to Leaving Certificate pupils from schools affiliated to third level access
  • TAP foundation course for mature students

    This one-year course prepares mature students (EU students who are over twenty three years of age on 1 January of the proposed year of entry) for entry to undergraduate studies at Trinity College and other third-level institutions.

Further information is available on the Admissions Office website.
