Transition Year Programme 2025

The School of Nursing and Midwifery runs a one-week programme for transition year students, taking in approximately 50 students each year. The students will spend three days of the five days in a classroom setting in our building on D’Olier Street and on the Trinity College campus, where they will learn about the professions of nursing and midwifery from our lecturers, students and clinical colleagues. In addition, there will be presentations on the services and supports provided for students of Trinity College. The other two days of the programme will be based in our clinical skills labs and teaching rooms in St James’s Hospital, Dublin 8.

To maximise school participation, only one student per school will be accepted onto the programme in the first round of offers. Students who do not secure a place in the first round will be placed on a waiting list. Should a student who has been offered a place withdraw from the programme, then their place will be offered to those on the waiting list.

Dates for Transition Year Programme 2025

To be confirmed: the date will be announced toward the end of September 2024, and it is likely that the programme will run in April 2025.

The insurance policy should state that the employer is indemnified, and not just provide public liability insurance.

  •  Letter from School

The letter should confirm that, in the event of being offered a place, they are willing to release the student to attend.
