Queen's University Belfast
The Trinity Summer School is delighted to announce that one week of the course will take place at Queen's University in Belfast. Since its foundation, the Summer School has been committed to offering its students an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the conflict in Northern Ireland. This week enables the students to explore 'the North' within a structured environment, through courses and cultural events. During this week, course modules will concentrate on Northern Ireland topics, taught by faculty and guest speakers from Northern Ireland, complemented by local field trips and cultural events. Last year's activities included poetry readings and a representative political forum at Stormont.
Trinity College Dublin
Located in the heart of the capital city, Trinity College Dublin is the ideal place to embark upon a course of Irish studies. Ireland's oldest university, Trinity College was founded by Queen Elizabeth I in 1592 and is one of the best known universities in the English speaking world with an academic reputation that extends worldwide. Oliver Goldsmith, Edmund Burke, Oscar Wilde, JM Synge, Jonathan Swift and Samuel Beckett are among the many notable graduates whose spirits roam the cobbled courtyards and leafy squares of the college.
The Library of Trinity College is the largest research library in Ireland, with almost four million volumes. The Old Library houses the richly illuminated Book of Kells among its vast collection of books and manuscripts, music and maps.
