International Exchange Programme (Undergraduate)

Outgoing Students

The School encourages its students to study abroad in our partner universities

In Senior Freshman year, Trinity students who want to take Moderatorships in Biochemistry or Immunology (Molecular Medicine on a case by case basis) can apply to the International Exchange Programme to spend their Junior Sophister year (third year) abroad. Currently the School has agreements with various Universities for the ERASMUS+ scheme and any College-wide non-EU exchange programmes. A year spent in another country is an invaluable experience particularly in the case of France or Germany where acquisition of proficiency in the use of the language and experience of the culture may confer benefits later when seeking employment. A number of these exchanges have been selected because some or all of the content lectures are provided in English. However, for France, Spain, Poland or Germany you should study the language in the College CLCS from the start of the Senior Freshman year, unless you are already proficient.

The ERASMUS+ scheme has a bursary available of €250/month to help support the exchange student. All rising Senior Freshman students who wish to be considered must contact Dr Andrei Budanov (budanova@tcd.ie) before the end of Michaelmas semester for ERASMUS+ and before the end of October for non-EU exchange programmes. Only students who obtain a 2:1 average in Senior Freshman year will be allowed to take up a place abroad. In the event of more candidate applications than places, exam results will be used to identify the successful applicant.
