Opportunity Description

With a tradition of scholarship spanning four centuries, Trinity College Dublin boasts talented and inquiring minds from all over the world, a liberal education, and world-class research conducted at the frontiers of many disciplines.

What is unique about this program?

The CASA Trinity College Dublin academic program explores the theme of Ireland Old and New. The program begins with a one week orientation program, Understanding Ireland, which offers students the opportunity to meaningfully understand and interpret Ireland’s culture, literature and political history.

CASA-Trinity students also have the optional opportunity to enroll in one graduate Masters-level class, subject to approval.  At present, there are a number of options available in a variety of disciplines.

What is unique about Dublin?

Dublin, Ireland’s capital, is home to 1.5 million people. With a young and cosmopolitan population, Dublin is known for its friendly, open, and welcoming people. A UNESCO City of Literature, the city bustles with energy and a thriving social scene. Nestled between the mountains and the sea, Dublin affords easy access to the rest of Ireland and Europe.

How do I apply?

Applying to study abroad is a two-step process. You may complete both steps simultaneously, but the Cornell approval process must be complete before your program advisor in the Office of Global Learning can submit any approval or nomination to the program.

  1. For Cornell Approval, click on the "Apply" button on this webpage. Applications are approved by the Office of Global Learning on a rolling basis until the application deadline listed on this page.
  2. For Program Admission, complete an external application directly on Trinity College Dublin's study abroad webpage, using the link in the “Snapshot” section. This application must be submitted by the CASA Dublin deadline (March 1 for Fall/AY and October 1 for Spring), which is earlier than the Trinity College Dublin deadline. 
    • External applications are reviewed for specific areas/schools on a rolling basis and certain areas of study can fill up quickly. Early applications are encouraged.
