4th Year Students

We are delighted to you to the Year 4 of the Trinity Joint Honours programmes. We hope that you'll find the Trinity Joint Honours Handbook for Senior Sophister students helpful for the year and as always please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have throughout your 4th year of study.


The key feature of the 4th year of study on Trinity programmes is that students undertake a Capstone project. The Capstone requires a significant level of independent research by the student. It should be an integrative exercise that allows students to showcase skills and knowledge which they have developed across a range of subject areas and across their four years of study. It should result in the production of a significant piece of original work by the student. It should also provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their attainment of the 4 Trinity Graduate Attributes: to think independently; to communicate effectively; to develop continuously; and to act responsibly.


We are excited to see the first cohort of Trinity Joint Honour students graduate this year 2022/23. Academic Registry are the main co-ordinator of graduation ceremonies at Trinity. All eligible students will be invited to register to attend their ceremonies, either in person or absentia, through their inbox.
