Transition Year Programme 2018
The application process for the Transition Year Programme 2018 is now closed.

Transition Year Programme 2019
The School of Nursing and Midwifery runs a one-week programme for transition year students, taking in 50 students each year. To maximise school participation, only one student per school will be accepted onto the programme in the first round of offers.
The students will spend two days in a classroom setting in our building on D’Olier Street, where they will learn about the professions of nursing and midwifery from our lecturers and students. In addition, there will be presentations on the services and supports provided for students of Trinity College. A further two days of the programme will be based in our clinical skills labs and teaching rooms based in St James’s Hospital, Dublin 8. The final day of the programme will include a tour of the Book of Kells exhibition.

Application process for Transition Year Programme 2019
The application form for the Transition Year Programme 2019 will be made available in October 2018. The exact date of release of the form will be published on this page at least two weeks in advance, to give students sufficient notice to gather the required documents below.
Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis for completed applications only; partial applications will not be processed. In order for the application to be processed, the application form must be accompanied by the documentation listed below.

  • Personal statement (no more than 300 words)

Students should outline the reasons why they would like to attend the School of Nursing and Midwifery Transition Year Programme. Maybe include details of why you would like to study nursing or midwifery and your expectations in relation to College life.

  • Secondary School’s insurance

The insurance policy should state that the employer is indemnified, and not just provide public liability insurance. The policy must be in date at the time of application. Should a student be accepted onto the programme, an updated policy should be submitted in the event that it expires prior to commencement of the TY programme.

  • Letter from School

The letter should confirm that, in the event of being offered a place, they are willing to release the student to attend.
