1. Health Screening

You must contact Aisling Thompson (aisling.thompson@dental.tcd.ie) as soon as possible to receive vital information about Health Screening

2. Garda Vetting

All students on this course must complete the Garda Vetting process before they will be able to register. Go to the Garda Vetting page to download the forms and follow the guidelines carefully.

3. Meet Your Tutor

You will receive an email in your MyTCD inbox (where you register) before you arrive which will tell you when your Tutor is available to meet with you during Freshers' Week. You must attend one of the two slots they will have available. If you can't make the times in the letter, email your Tutor and arrange an alternative meeting. Your Tutor will be really important for you during your time in College, so it's important that you meet them early.

4. S2S Mentor Meet-Up

Your S2S Mentors are fellow students who will play a critical role in helping you to navigate your first year in Trinity. They will make sure you:

  • Get to know other students
  • Have a space to ask questions
  • Know your way around the physical campus and the online resources available
  • Feel like you’re a part of the Trinity community

If you have any difficulties attending your session, please contact student2student@tcd.ie and we will make sure you’re included in a group and that you get to catch-up on anything you’ve missed.
