Short Courses Commencing week of 9th September, 2019
Our Short Courses Programme is an integral part of the Loyola Institute’s outreach activity. These courses are designed to provide an enriching opportunity to explore important themes and today’s critical issues. They offer an opportunity to experience our courses by joining our students in classes, without having to undergo formal assessment.
These courses are suitable for all who have a curiosity about theology and the big issues of life, as well as those who may be considering undertaking further studies in theology. These are daytime courses and comprise two lectures a week for an eleven-week term starting 9th September 2019. The classes take place on the Trinity College Dublin campus, either in the Loyola Institute in the ISE/Loyola Building or in lecture theatres nearby.
These are non-assessed courses and do not have any course work or examinations. To view / download the courses that are on offer for the Academic Year 2019-2020 please follow the attached link and the School's modules offerings start on page 78 (page 81 in this pdf).
The date for registering on a module is Wednesday, 4th September between 4 – 6 p.m, in Room G8 in the ISE/LI Building, East Campus, Trinity College, Dublin. You may also use the online application form to post in your application and fee for the attention of Jane Welch at the above address.
Brendan Ward from Auckland, New Zealand on his experience of attending short courses
I audited (i.e. no assignments or exams) a selection of courses at the Loyola Institute, Trinity College, Dublin. The quality of the teaching was great. I found the courses engaging, positively challenging, refreshing and easily accessible. There were also regular opportunities for shared discussions with fellow students around coffee tables within and beyond the Trinity campus. I would heartily recommend studying at the Loyola Institute, whether for short term courses or longer term study for post-graduate Diploma, Masters, or Doctoral qualifications.
Michaelmas term (Autumn): Monday 9th September, 2019– Friday 29th November, 2019 (Reading Week commences 21st October, 2019 - No lecturers that week).
