Top 8 places to check out during your first month in Ireland

By Carina Dozier

Hello! My name is Carina, a student from the University of California, Berkeley, and I’m currently studying at Trinity for the spring semester. I chose Trinity, and Dublin specifically, because of the “small-big city” vibe (much like my home city of Berkeley), the exceptional Trinity academics, and especially opportunities to travel all over Ireland and Europe! I have only been here a month, but already I love the history in Dublin, the endless beauty and quirkiness of the city, and the friendliness of the Irish people. I am lucky enough to have been able to travel to a different place in Ireland almost every weekend as well, so I wanted to share my experiences, to help any students uncertain about what to do while they’re here!

Exploring Dublin: Favorite Walks

By Isabella Gentleman

Visiting Student Blogger, St. Olaf College

As a visiting student at Trinity, it has been important to me to learn as much about the city of Dublin and its people while I’m here, in addition to everything I’m learning at Trinity. Being from America, Dublin’s centuries-old architecture and history is remarkable. Its city centre alone offers an abundance of things to explore – I have never been bored.

BITESIZE TOP 10 COURSES: PSYCHOLOGY

Audrey is one of our international students who is in her fourth year in Trinity.  Here she lets us know about her experience of studying Psychology at Trinity, one of our Top 10 Courses. 

Your name:  Audrey Chew

Your year of study: 4th Year (Senior Sophister)

Your programme of study / course:  Two-subject Moderatorship (TSM) Psychology and Sociology

 What made you decide to study your course at Trinity?

When I had my first tour around Trinity during the Open Day, I knew that this would be a university I would be proud to call my own. Trinity has a prestigious international reputation and the campus is absolutely gorgeous. Most importantly, its Two Subject Moderatorship (TSM) programme allowed for me to combine two of my desired Arts and Humanities subjects into a degree which most other universities did not offer. As a Psychology student, it was compulsory for me to participate in 20 hours’ worth of other people’s research in the university, which allowed me to discover and understand the different possible routes of Psychology. Also, I love the central location of the university as everything is just a short walk away – great brunch locations, cafés, restaurants, cinemas and more. Lastly, I knew that I was able to continue all my hobbies and discover new ones with the vast variety of clubs and societies in the university.
