To Study Abroad in the TCD, School of Nursing & Midwifery. Launching new Programme September 2018

Overview

The Trinity College Dublin (TCD) Study Abroad (SA) scheme is an arrangement by which non EU undergraduate students can come to study at Trinity for a single semester (Autumn (Michaelmas) or Spring (Hilary)) or for a full year.

You can select courses across a range of subject areas, as long as timetabling alignment will allow, and you are not restricted to courses only in your major subject. We in the School of Nursing and Midwifery are delighted to be part of the study abroad scheme. We offer a choice of modules, mostly relevant to nursing and midwifery students, but which may also be of interest to students in other professional fields, the sciences and arts and humanities. Some modules do expect the student to have a working knowledge of clinical nursing or midwifery practice.
