Summer Programmes

Are you interested in studying abroad but perhaps wary of going for a full semester or for a year? Many of our partner universities also offer shorter summer courses which are open to current TCD students, which will give you the opportunity to gain some international experience without having to commit to a longer period overseas.

Taking part in a summer programme can be a brilliant way to experience a university experience abroad without spending a whole term or year abroad. Unlike with longer programmes, however, credits gained in summer programmes do not count as part of your degree. The courses on offer at each institution are often taught by leading experts in their respective fields, and vary from engineering and science-focused courses to courses focused on language, culture, and history of the region. Please note: being outside the academic year, costs to attend summer programmes are at the student’s expense.

Available summer programmes change from year to year. An up-to-date list of summer programmes is kept with our Student Mobility Officer – contact our Study Abroad team at with ‘Summer Programmes Outbound’ in the subject line. Alternatively, pop by Trinity’s Global Room
