Founded in 1592, Trinity College Dublin is Ireland’s university on the world stage, offering undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across 24 schools and three faculties: arts, humanities, and social sciences; engineering, maths and science; and health sciences.

Spread across 50 acres in Dublin city centre, Trinity’s 17,000-strong student body comes from all 32 counties and more than 120 countries, making it a cosmopolitan campus with a focus on diversity, intellectual rigour, academic excellence and research-led teaching. Home to Nobel prize-winners such as scientist Ernest Walton and writer Samuel Beckett, Trinity draws visitors from across the world to its historic campus each year, including to the Book of Kells and Science Gallery which capture the university’s connection to both old and new.

Trinity’s Old Library, which houses the Long Room, is the largest research library in Ireland, with a collection of six million printed items, 500,000 maps, 80,000 electronic journals, and 350,000 electronic books. Ranked 88th in the world in the latest QS World Rankings, Trinity offers a liberal, transformative education at the frontiers of disciplines.

  • The Balliol neighbor (we can do both, starting at 10: 00 this busy morning), Trinity College seems smaller than its competitors. This does not detract from its interest, on the contrary, because everything can be seen in other colleges, is concentrated here, and for the better, particularly in its gardens, (a gardener's dream) and in his Chapel, remarkably decorated (stained glass, painted ceiling, organ, finely crafted inlaid and decorated with cherubs altarpiece). There is something very precious and almost feminine (in contrast to other very martial Oxford colleges) who emerges from the place and who is also confirmed on a tour where are four women who include astronomy, medicine, geometry and theology. Evidence that the English were already very 'open mind' before the time. An open mind that fits well with Trinity College, itself very open on the street (in contrast to other colleges locked behind their walls) by grids that incite into this strange universe (for a Cartesian mind coupled with a french egalitarianism inherited of the Revolution) that tradition perpetuates today between a progressive conservatism and a creative vitality who see in the shelves of his rich library and which might also inspire us.
