Undergraduate education is an essential part of the university's service to society and is a strategic priority for Trinity College Dublin. In the coming years the ethos and quality of undergraduate education will be maintained and developed through research-led teaching and curriculum renewal. Course provision will be aligned with student demand while maintaining our core value of being a multidiscipline university. We envisage further diversification of the student body through increased internationalization, and through greater participation by groups who are currently under-represented.
Trinity College Dublin is at the forefront of graduate education in Ireland. Trinity's current strategy emphasizes the importance of strong disciplinary foundations with appropriate skills training, aligned with cross-cutting and interdisciplinary research. The aim is to develop this further through the TCD-UCD Innovation Academy, a radical new departure bringing Ireland's two largest providers of graduate education together to transform the doctoral experience to create a new kind of Ph.D. graduate—one who is not only expert in his or her discipline but also creative and innovative and able to convert knowledge, ideas and inventions into economic and social benefits for society.
Other priorities include collaboration with other third-level institutions to achieve the rationalisation of courses, the appropriate recognition of prior learning, and the implementation of the Bologna process.
