" The academic staffs are very informative and proactive. Besides, this university has a lot of international students, so you may broaden your connection here. They also offer various workshops and career fair in the campus. There are plenty of restaurants, café and even a bar inside the campus. In addition, the school also provide free health centre services. "

" Nowhere here could I review the current Provost or the college's blatant preference for profit over protecting its students. Nor could I write a scathing review about the inequity of the traditional Scholarship programme, nor the variability in student experience across different schools. I entered the Neuroscience degree in its infancy, which made for a lot of timetabling difficulties, admin confusion, and clustering of deadlines across our different modules. However, our course coordinators are SO kind, and we go about our days knowing that they're doing their best to fight our corner and improve the course for us and for future cohorts. I have very mixed feelings about Trinity as an institution, but my college experience is overall a good one. There are hundreds of different societies, the sports facilities are brilliant, and while I can't vouch for some first and second year lectures, third year has been pretty amazing in terms of academic content and delivery. In spite of Trinity itself, its staff are doing a brilliant job, and if you reach out to them they will meet you halfway. Go to Trinity if you want, but be prepared to actually ask for help when you need it, and maybe fight for it if it becomes necessary (here's looking at you, Academic Registry).; don't be surprised if the Powers that Be announce something that you disagree with on a fundamental level. I personally would go back again if only for the SU Café - this place is carrying me through my degree on its good vibes train. "

" Trinity is a good university overall. It has a beautiful campus and the quality of the academic staff as well as the academic rigour of its courses are good. Unfortunately, it tends to rely heavily on its long history and its somewhat undeserved international reputation. As an international student, the fees are competitive compared to universities to the UK. However, you can't help but feel like a cash cow to a university that lowers its admissions standards so that it can recruit more international students. These are some caveats to take into consideration if you are an international student considering Trinity. "

" A good university overall but needs to improve academic registry and course organisation. If the beauty of the campus could be equalled by the management of the college and faculties, it would be the best college in Ireland. "
