If you’ve any questions about studying abroad, there are lots of people you can talk to for more information about how you can build an international experience into your Trinity degree, how to make the most of your time abroad, and how best to articulate what you’ve learned from your experience overseas.

Making the most of an exchange placement?

Maximise your time away! Go to classes (keep up those grades for final year!) and immerse yourself in different teaching styles and learning approaches.

Explore your new campus, city, country, and more! There are all sorts of interesting things to see and do no matter where you’re based – you may never find yourself in your exchange destination country again, so make the most of a genuinely once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Tell the world about your progress and experiences on our Student Blog!

Struggling with being away?

You’re never more than a phone call away from friends and family at home, who will be delighted to hear from you – but don’t forget the time zone difference! A phone call for a casual check in with your loved ones may well get a different reception at lunchtime their time rather than 2am! And remember: always keep in touch.

Always remember that you’re still a registered student with Trinity while you’re away, so you’ll still be able to access your Personal Tutor or your home department, and there are often similar support services available to visiting students at your host university. 

Stay in touch with the equivalent of the Global Mobility team at your host university for advice on how to access any support services you need. And, of course, we at the Global Mobility Team in Trinity are always here for you, contact us at  

Please remember that we cannot and will not discuss student issues with anyone other than the student without explicit written consent.

Student Advising

Advising on international exchange options for 2024-2025 will take place in the International Exchange and Erasmus Hub from 10am-12:30 and 13:30-16:00 daily, Monday 16th October – Friday 17th November 2023. Drop in to chat with a Trinity Global member of staff or a Global Mobility Ambassador who undertook an exchange last year. The International Exchange and Erasmus Hub is located in the Global Room, Watts Building.

Prepare for your return to Trinity

Don’t forget that your grades in your year away count towards your degree. Take your classes seriously, and make the most of the opportunities available to you at your host university to prepare yourself academically for your final year! Check in with your Academic Exchange Coordinator at Trinity to make sure your transcripts have been sent from your host institution.
