Joint Honors/Modern Language

Trinity is changing the way in which we offer students the opportunity to combine subjects in their degrees, combining perspectives and ways of understanding the world. Beginning in 2019/20, Trinity will be replacing the long-standing Two-Subject Moderatorship (TSM) with a new set of two subject combinations, to be called Joint Honors. Some of these sixty-two combinations will be familiar and have been popular with students for many years, others will be new.  Further information can be found in the flyers listed below:

Joint Honors Booklet (678KB)

Modern Languages Flyer (PDF 1.44MB)

Please note that there have been changes made to the permitted combinations in the Language/Modern Language table since the publication of the CAO Handbook and the Undergraduate prospectus.  From 1 December onwards please use the table in the Modern Langauges flyer above.

Visit Trinity

Trinity welcomes college counsellors to visit our beautiful campus any time during the year. We are happy to accommodate group or individual visits visits.

Group visits are usually special events aimed to give international school counsellors the opportunity to meet staff and students, learn about Trinity’s admissions requirements and procedures, tour the historic campus and experience the vibrancy of Dublin city.

If you come individually, we would usually arrange for a campus tour and a visit to Trinity's spectacular Old Library, followed by a meeting with a Global Relations staff who will go over our academic programmes, admissions process, and student services information.

To inquire about group or individual visits, please contact the Regional Officer for your country or email us at We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin and hope you enjoy your time here. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Fáilte (that's Irish for welcome) to Trinity!
