Name: Trinity College Dublin
Location: Dublin, Ireland
University size: 18,000 undergraduate and graduate students (26% international) 
University founded: 1592
Terms available: academic year only
Dates: late August to late May Start and end dates noted are tentative and subject to change.
Academic Calendar:
Pre-university program: There is a required early start called the Semester Start-Up Program (SSP) that runs for 3 weeks before the Fall semester (generally mid-August to early September). The program offers an overview of Irish history and culture through a combination of lectures and field trips and gives you an opportunity to gain an understanding of Irish history and culture as well as providing a wonderful opportunity to meet other Visiting Students before the term even begins. Learn more about the Semester Start-Up here:
Registration info: 60 credits per year (30 per term) is a full course load. This usually amounts to six 5-credit classes per semester. There are some 10-credit classes! If you take one 10-credit class and four 5-credit classes, that is considered a full-time course load even though you are only in 5 modules (classes). The semester start-up program does not count towards your 120 credits for the year. 
ICIP required: Yes 
Housing: Students will be housed in an off-campus apartment in Dublin City Centre that is walking-distance (<20mins) to Trinity's main campus 
Maximum capacity:  10 Holy Cross students per academic year: This is a highly competitive program.  We are only able to send 10 students per academic year.  In the event that we receive more applications than available openings, we will select participants with the highest GPAs in their respective majors to attend Trinity.  It is advisable that students interested in Trinity arrange to meet with Assistant Director Emma Meade ( to discuss alternative locations in the event that student interest in Trinity exceeds capacity.
