Outbound Student Opportunities
There are two types of opportunities to study abroad.
Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Studying abroad, for one semester or a full year, is a central part of Erasmus+.
While on Erasmus students can study at one of Trinity’s 180 European partner universities across 20 countries. Where you can study abroad on Erasmus, however, is dependent on the Subject-specific exchanges which are set up between the School and partner universities.
Whether you are embarking on an Erasmus/EU Exchange or a Non-EU Exchange it is important that you fully consider the impact that studying abroad will have on your studies.
More information on the Erasmus / EU exchanges can also be found on Trinity’s Study Abroad website.
Non-EU exchanges (also referred to as International Exchanges), or International exchanges, are with universities outside Europe, so if you’re interested in studying in the USA, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Singapore or other such destinations this is the exchange programme for you.
The School holds an information session on Non-EU Exchanges every September. This session will take place after the International Exchange and Erasmus Information session which is held by the Study Abroad office. Students will need to attend both sessions.
The slides from the 2022 SCSS International Exchange information session can be viewed here.
If you are selected for participation in the Study Abroad programme, you will have to consider your module choices very carefully to ensure that they are roughly the same as you would study at Trinity, that they are at an appropriate level and that you satisfy any prerequisites that may be in force for those modules.
Prior to making your Study Abroad application you must gain approval for your university and module choices from the School of Computer Science and Statistics. This will require you to submit the SCSS Study Abroad Module Form with your selected universities and corresponding modules to the Academic Coordinator for review.
Students interested in a Non-EU exchange should read through the information available on the Study Abroad website. Here you will find a list of all Trinity’s International Partner Universities as well as details on How to Apply.
