The International Welcome Programme matches Trinity students studying in non-EU countries with Trinity graduates who live locally. Mentors can advise students on everything from how to eat like a local, to what places to visit.

Mentors and students are encouraged to meet up at least once, and often continue meeting up for various activities while the student is in the area.

The International Welcome Programme is a great way for Trinity graduates who live abroad to reconnect with Trinity, and give back to current students. Likewise, the Programme is an opportunity for students to make connections with graduates who are willing to offer advice, guidance and support while living and studying far from Trinity’s campus.
