Trinity College Dublin

Ranked No. I in Ireland, and included in the of top 120 global universities, Trinity College Dublin, was established in 1592. The university is located right in the middle of Ireland’s capital city, its ancient courtyards and squares built in such a way that they  turn their backs on the twenty-first century, with busy Grafton Street merely a stone’s throw away. Trinity is an ancient university with a modern outlook, cutting edge resources and a pioneering spirit. Its blend of historical traditions and Innovation and Enterprise Centres offers you the best of both worlds. Forbes ranked Trinity as the fifteenth most beautiful college grounds in the world and its peaceful squares, rich libraries and welcoming atmosphere attract visitors and applicants alike.
