You may face a few challenges in your time as a student. The School of Medicine are here to help with anything we can and if we are unable to directly assist, we can put you into touch with the relevant office.
We work closely with your tutor, campus services and peer student groups to ensure robust support is available for matters of health & well-being, academics and practicalities. Early in your first academic year, students are assigned a tutor who is available to advise on matters of academic and personal significance.
Trinity Sport keeps you fit while the College Health Service will help you look after your mind and body on a one-to-one basis or through Healthy Trinity initiatives. Our Student Counselling Service provides confidential and non-judgemental support at no cost to registered students and School staff attend training sessions with them to ensure we're able to help as best as we can.
Student Learning & Development are on hand to fortify your academic skills with a fantastic range of workshops and events, as well as individual guidance.
The Student2Student office provides mentors to every new student at Trinity - you meet them during Orientation week where they'll give you hints and tips to help you transition to Trinity. Your mentor will be available to you throughout your first year and there is also peer support available to students at any stage during their time in College. They also run a New2Dublin evening to help anyone new to the city make friends. You might even volunteer to become a mentor or supporter yourself after your first year!
We're big on peer support and student engagement here at Trinity - TCDSU run student elections and advocate on behalf of all students at Trinity on a college and national level. At School level we invite your class representatives to provide reports at Curriculum and student Welfare and Progress committees, as well as link in with us on anything that arises for your class.
We've also got you covered for practical items - here in the Medical school we issue documents, letters and transcripts for current students and alumni as we understand this is a necessity for your entire life in Medicine. Our colleagues in Academic Registry are able to help with letters for financial institutions and visa requirements.
