The Trinity Access Programmes (TAP) are a key part of Trinity’s social mission. Since 1993, TAP has worked in partnership with families, communities, schools, and businesses to widen educational access through a range of innovative, targeted educational programmes. TAP aims to increase participation in education by students from non-traditional backgrounds, to address educational disadvantage and to create a university campus that mirrors the diverse composition of Irish society.


TAP’s mission has been strongly supported by a range of businesses, individuals and Trinity Alumni groups. Becoming a TAP supporter is a direct investment in people who face barriers to fulfilling their potential, in society as a whole, and in Ireland’s economic future.

Grant Thornton is delighted to help young people from our local community in accessing a potentially life transforming educational experience. The aims of the TAP programme are strongly aligned with the firm's own values, which fosters a culture of growth through education. By investing our time and money now in this world class programme we believe TAP will continue to develop graduates who will become leaders of the future to create a more inclusive, just and diverse society.
