Hi guys,

I might apply to Trinity College Dublin to read English (currently on a gap year with A*A*A*A at A level) - could anyone give me a quick overview of how the points system works please, whether or not I'd be competitive and opinions/experiences of the college/uni?

Thanks, have a great day 🙂

You’d have 593 points 185x3 for your 3 A*s and another 38 for your 4th A-level (very little benefit for the 4th in CAO points).

TR023 - English Studies was 487 points for entry this year so you have plenty of points.

I went there a long time ago, but my eldest is going into his 3rd year and loves it. My youngest is about to start there next week. It’s an amazing campus bang in the centre of a young and vibrant city, although Covid has put a bit of a dampener on things.

Hi! I'm an international student preparing to apply to TCD (classical civilisation), but I'm not sure about my fee status. I am a Chinese citizen but have been living in Italy since 2018 (my parents are not in Italy so I'm basically living alone), so will they consider me as an EU applicant or an international one? I have been very keen on this matter since, as you know, my fee status will make a significant difference in Ireland.
By the way, do you by any chance know some classicists at TCD? How is their joint honour programme like? I couldn't find any information on their website about their joint programme.
