What the students say

I loved biology in secondary school and wanted to study genetics or neuroscience so I applied to do Natural Science, reading the prospectus I thought you could choose to specialize in whatever you wanted for the final years, I didn't realize it was a competitive process until second year, unfortunately I found Chemistry difficult and I had to sit the supplemental chemistry exam in second year and despite doing quite well in that and having done well in all the other exams first time round I was left to choose a subject from what was leftover, all of which I had no interest in, so after studying Chemistry for the whole summer and having done well in the repeat exam I chose this. Long story short I'm in Chemistry because I failed Chemistry.

I would tell a friend that they would be attending one of the most prominent scholarly institutions in the world, but that the experience is far from elitist. TCD students have a strong work ethic and an even stronger socializing reputation. The coursework will push you, and you might not always be happy with your results, but upon completion your degree will prove an invaluable tool to have in the working world. Future employers have already told me how well regarded Trinity is by recruiting companies. Overall they'll find that Trinity has a lot to offer academically and socially, and there time there will most likely be some of the best years of their life!

It is a very good college for academic reasons. The library facilities are to a high standard and the lecturers are all brilliant. However the social life is terrible if you don't take he oppertunity to make friends at the right time. Make friends in the 1st semester or it is very hard to make friends later.
