How Do I Apply?

As a first step in applying to go on exchange, it's important to think about what an exchange involves – going to new places, seeing a new university and discovering new styles of learning. Are you ready to go overseas and discover a new life for yourself? 

When deciding whether or not to go on exchange, you need to think about how you plan to meet the cost involved in going away, and also think about the academic planning involved in meeting your course requirements when overseas. All students need to dedicate the necessary time and attention in advance to plan their exchange well. Please note that students cannot go on non-approved programmes for Study Abroad.

Conversion Tables

These conversion tables are intended to be used to convert the marks and credits of Trinity students who return from an Erasmus.

It is recommended that the tables should be adopted across College, however it is recognized that they will need to be reviewed on an annual basis and Schools/Disciplines that have more refined tables, for instance for universities within a specific country, may continue to use them if they are broadly in line with the grade categories in these tables. These new tables replace any existing College conversion schemes.
