Incoming Erasmus Students
The Department warmly welcomes exchange students who may be attending Trinity College for just one semester or a full academic year. Such students may take modules on offer in the second, third and – upon consultation with the Erasmus coordinator - fourth years. View further details on our modules. A welcome meeting organised by Business, Economics, Political Science, Sociology and Philosophy will take place on Wednesday 20th September 2017 in Ed Burke Theatre @5pm.
On arrival, I shall discuss a learning programme with you and advise you at what level you can enrol in our modules. Please note that fourth-year modules are only available to Erasmus students upon prior consultation. We expect one-year Erasmus students to follow both halves of any (second- and third-) year module.
You are expected to fulfil the same module requirements as Trinity students. Our policy is that you need to take part in annual examinations of all modules you are registered for. The annual examination period (four weeks) is between late April and late May. This means that you will need to be in residence until at least late May. Michaelmas Term (one-semester) only students must remain in residence until the last day of teaching. View further information about the 2017-18 academic year structure.
All Incoming Erasmus students need to fill in an application form following nomination through their home university first. The further admission process is outlined on the International Admissions and Study Abroad website along with an address where to post your completed application forms to.
All students should note that while enhancing linguistic skills is part of the experience of studying abroad, we expect students to be fully proficient in English. Prospective Erasmus students are especially reminded that sitting a series of examinations without adequate linguistic competences is virtually impossible and might result in fail grades.
If you have any questions about our Erasmus programme please do not hesitate to contact our Incoming Erasmus Coordinator, Dr Pablo Gracia but make sure you have studied this website and all the links carefully first. I will be pleased to answer your queries about module choices and contents and sign your module registration forms and learning agreements during my office hours.
