The Department of Philosophy warmly welcomes international visiting and exchange students from around the world. Whether students are here for a single term, or an entire academic year, we hope their time at Trinity is both fun and academically rewarding.
Such students may take any module from the Junior Fresher (JF) and/or Senior Fresher (SF) years. Under special circumstances, and with the proper background in philosophy and the approval of the Philosophy Visiting Student Coordinator, courses from the Junior Sophister (JS) and/or Senior Sophister (SS) years may be selected.
The official list of exchange agreements/destinations can be found (https://www.tcd.ie/ssp/undergraduate/study-abroad/outgoing/destinations/)
Please note we no longer have an exchange linkage with Paris, but instead have one with Koç University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Further details on how to apply to come to Trinity as a visiting student are available on the Study at Trinity website.
