1. 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.

2. Health Screening

New students must complete TCD health screening requirements. Failure to do so may result in you being withdrawn from your course and a re-admission fee will apply.

Go to the Health Screening page to download the booklet and follow the instructions in the checklist.

3. Meet Your Tutor

You will have a College Tutor assigned to you in the first few weeks. You’ll be able to check the name of your tutor in my.tcd.ie. You should reach out to them to introduce yourself, and they may also contact you in your first weeks. 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.
