Incoming Visiting and Exchange Students


The Department of Philosophy warmly welcomes international visiting students who may be attending Trinity College for just one semester, or a full academic year. 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.
