Make a Gift
During term, we run visit days on a Tuesday or Wednesday each week to enable primary and secondary school students to come and experience university life and Trinity College. We welcome enquiries from teachers and individual students for a visit of any year group and time of year though generally, we prioritise Years 11 and 12 in Autumn Term, Years 12 and 10 in Spring Term and Years 9 and below in Summer Term.
While we appreciate that it may be difficult for North East schools or individual students to travel down for one of these, we would absolutely welcome you if you are able to organise such a trip. Please get in touch if this interests you, we will try to accommodate your school group/ you in college overnight free of charge to make this visit easier.
There are two types of visit days you can book in for at Trinity:
These days aim to give students a flavour of life at the College and the University.

We will announce the dates of our inbound visits each term via our newsletter. If you are not yet signed up for this please do get in touch on email@example.com and one of the team will add you. On average, we send one email every two weeks during term time with information about our inbound and outbound visits plus opportunities and events from across the University for you and your students.
You can book onto inbound visits by emailing us. Depending on availability, we tend to allow four schools to book around six selected students onto each day. If you would to bring a larger group please get in touch and we will try to accommodate this. If you would like to arrange a visit that is outside the dates and/or activities we have on offer, you are very welcome to.
