So if you want to see the world from another angle—literally—we’ll help you do just that. The only thing that we ask? That you don’t expect to come back as the same person you were when you left.
Trinity College is proud to offer a portfolio of five Trinity-administered study away programs located in five urban and global sites in key locations around the world. We also connect students with a wide range of approved external programs to meet their educational interests in every corner of the globe.
We design and deliver high-quality study away programs in diverse global learning environments, which enrich the academic experience at Trinity College, and encourage students to engage with the world.
Study away isn't cheap but it doesn't have to be cost prohibitive either. The cost of studying away varies greatly depending the type and length of the program and the destination. With the right information and advanced planning, most students can afford to study away.
