Trinity is delighted to announce the launch of two new exciting programmes aimed at international students: the Bachelor of Business Studies (Trinity Specialist Business Degree) and the Trinity International Foundation Programme. Both programmes are now taking applications for September 2016.

Bachelor of Business Studies (Trinity Specialist Business Degree)
Trinity Business School has recently launched an innovative new business course for undergraduate students - the Bachelor of Business Studies (Trinity Specialist Business Degree).  This is a unique programme, designed for students who wish to focus on business from the very beginning of their degree.  Innovation, entrepreneurship and experiential learning are key pillars of this dynamic new programme.  The programme places an emphasis on blended learning, where academic excellence meets industry experience.  Students gain first-hand practical business skills throughout the programme by undertaking internships, developing a start-up or taking a leadership role in one of Trinity’s business student societies.  Students also have the opportunity to study abroad at one of our top-ranking partner institutions.  For further information visit: or Email:  

Trinity International Foundation Programme
The Trinity International Foundation Programme is a unique year-long, pre-university programme.  The Trinity International Foundation Programme offers a structured pre-university pathway designed to help students to reach their academic potential and is scheduled to begin in September 2016. There has been a growing demand from international students to study undergraduate programmes at Trinity in recent years and the International Foundation Programme will broaden access to students from a wide variety of countries.
Entry to Trinity’s undergraduate programmes is highly competitive and sought after. The International Foundation Programme provides a pathway for international students who have the drive and ambition to attend a world-class educational institute, but cannot begin an international undergraduate degree directly with their existing qualifications.
Students who successfully complete the programme and reach the required grades gain entry to the first year of undergraduate degrees at Trinity.  During the Foundation year students study: English language, Mathematics, critical thinking, communication skills, as well as subject-specific modules related to their chosen degree.  Further information can be found at  or Email:   

A number of scholarships are available for both programmes.  Further information on the scholarships for the Bachelor of Business Studies (Trinity Specialist Business Degree) is available at:
