Program Overview

TrinityThe Dublin Foreign Study Program is centered at Trinity College Dublin, one of the oldest and liveliest universities in Europe, and educational home to many of Ireland's best known writers, including George Bernard Shaw, Samuel Beckett, and Oscar Wilde.  The English Department, with its international faculty, attracts a wide array of students from both Ireland and the European Union.  TCD is located in the heart of downtown Dublin, within easy walking distance of the theatres and bookstores, the pubs and the music that make the city so culturally rich and exciting.  Dublin is a young person's town.

The program runs for 13 weeks:  1 week of Orientation and 12 weeks of study, with a  week break in the middle of the semester.  Students enrolled in the program take three courses in the English Department, one of them a course on Irish literature. They also undertake an independent study on some aspect of Irish literature and/or culture. The beginning of the program coincides with the Dublin Theatre Festival; students will attend several of the plays, including at least one at the Abbey Theatre, preceded by a lecture on the contemporary theatre scene. The Program also includes: a trip to Sligo, the area in the west of Ireland that was home to W.B. Yeats and the setting for many of his most famous poems; a reading group on James Joyce's Ulysses; an historical walking tour of the city immortalized by Joyce in A Portrait of the Artist and a Young Man and Ulysses; and opportunities to hear both traditional and contemporary Irish music.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for this program by clicking here. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
