Postgraduate Students

Postgraduate Orientation Week will to take place from the 11-15th September 2017 and is organised by the Graduate Students' Union (GSU). This is an invaluable opportunity to meet fellow postgraduate students and gain further insight into Trinity and the GSU. Orientation Week will include opportunities to have tours of campus, the libraries, sports facilities, and Dublin City Centre. There will be daily coffee/tea gatherings, several evening wine receptions, a table quiz, and other social nights out in Dublin’s bars throughout the week. We also encourage non-alcohol related events and there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Orientation will include an international student induction where you can get relevant information about being new to Ireland, and several general faculty orientation sessions. There will also be an address from the Provost, the President of the University, on Monday 11th which always proves to be a real highlight.

All information regarding Orientation Week will be available by the end of August. It will also be available on our Facebook, Twitter and online platforms. So get liking, get booking those flights so you can arrive on time and get involved in the festivities of Orientation Week and don't forget to look out for #TrinityGSU
