Who can I talk to about my options?
A number of national events are organised each year:
- Higher Options
- Better Options
- TCD Open Day
- DARE clinics
If you have a specific question for the Disability Service please contact a member of staff listed on this page.
Alternatively you can seek advice from a community or disability group, or post a message in the discussion forum.
If you know anyone who has studied in Trinity or studied a course that you are interested in, they are the best people to ask. Some of our students have posted course advice in the forum area.
You can also seek help from your school guidance counsellor or perhaps a resource teacher.
