Joint Honours

Your orientation timetable and other important information will be added to these pages in mid-August 2021.

If you have any access or assistance requirements for orientation week please do let us know at transitionoffice@tcd.ie

1. Module Enrolment

You will register for your modules on my.tcd.ie. This is a separate process to your registration for College so you MUST do both. Go to the “My Programme” tab in my.tcd.ie. Please see the page below for more information

2. 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.

3. Maths Preliminary Course for Business & Economics Students

If you didn't take Higher Level Maths please consider attending the Maths Preliminary Course. It's free, online, and aimed specifically at students taking Business subjects or Economics. Your first year modules will include some Maths and Statistics modules so this course will get you up to speed with what you will need to know to do well to hit the ground running when teaching starts.

Maths Preliminary Course

4. Mentor Meet-Up

Your 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

All students except Social Policy

Your first orientation activity will be an online S2S Mentor Meetup on Saturday 18th September at 15.00

You will receive an email to your @tcd.ie address on or before the morning of 18th September with full instructions on how to join your Mentor meetup.

If you don’t receive this email, or 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.

Social Policy combinations

You will have an online 3Set Mentor Meet-Up on Monday 20 September at 11.00.

You will receive an email to your @tcd.ie address on 17th September with full instructions on how to join your Mentor meetup.

If you don’t receive this email, or have any difficulties attending your session, please contact 3setwp3@gmail.com and we will make sure you’re included in a group and that you get to catch-up on anything you’ve missed.

5. Orientation Timetable

Orientation 2021 is scheduled to take place from 18 - 24 September. Your orientation timetable will be available here before Freshers' Week.

While every effort is being made to have your course meetings in person, due to space restrictions, it may be necessary to have some course meetings online. You'll know by Monday 13th whether your meeting is in-person or online. Even if your orientation is online, please still come on to campus at least one day and take part in the Freshers' Fair and other social events being organised for you by the Students' Union, Clubs and Societies.

If you would like to attend the Provost's Welcome in person you will need to book a ticket. Unfortunately places are limited for the Provost's Welcome Address, but you'll be able to watch a livestream of Wednesday's Address at www.tcd.ie/students/orientation/provosts-welcome.php from 18.00.

The timetable below lists events for ALL Joint Honours students. You should attend the course meetings for both of your chosen subjects from the list and then attend the other events. You must attend the events shown in blue.
