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.

It's a college steeped in history and tradition, located in the heart of Dublin, but when you're on campus, you're in a separate world to the outside. It's not posh, or snobbish, it has a beautiful campus and the academic staff are usually welcoming and friendly. It's size and self contained nature makes you really get the college experience, but it's not so large that you're always lost amongst the crowd. I can already tell that friends for life are being made here, and it only takes a few strolls along the blossom lined pathways in the spring, to tell you that it's a real privilege to attend Trinity College Dublin.
