Junior Sophister
In the Junior Sophister year, students can apply to participate in an Erasmus or international exchange to study at an overseas university for either half a year or a full year.

Outbound from TrinityBESS
The School of Social Work and Social Policy encourages our students to participate in study abroad programmes. These include departmental and Erasmus exchanges to universities across Europe; and college-wide exchanges to distinguished universities around the world. These programmes provide students with a unique opportunity to not only enrich their academic education but also to gain invaluable intercultural, language, social and civic skills. 
Please see the slides from our most recent Outbound Study Abroad Information Session for further information on 2024/25 study abroad opportunities.
