Understanding the importance of genomic variation and its impact on biology, opens up the possibility of advanced diagnostics and precision treatments, as well as an improved fundamental understanding of disease mechanisms and the effects of environmental exposures. Such developments will in turn lead to further, more specific therapeutic vistas. The programme is aimed at participants from a wide range of backgrounds from basic scientists to clinicians and those involved in the pharmaceutical industry and will be offered as full time or part time options covering 60 ECTs of taught and self-directed learning and 30 ECTs as an original research project. It will include multi-disciplinary training on a wide range of topics from genomics and cell biology, to analytical techniques and medical applications catering from basic to advanced levels. Optional modules will allow participants to tailor the programme to best suit their state of knowledge and professional aspirations.

Job Opportunity Potential

If you are an international student studying at Trinity, you might be considering internship and graduate work in Ireland, in your home country, or elsewhere. This section provides information for Non EU students on working in Ireland during and after your studies. For information and resources to support an international job search, see our Devex resource which includes international job search advice and information.

Employers value candidates who have more to offer than a good degree with high grades. They look for students who are well rounded and who have experience outside the classroom. Search for and take advantage of opportunities to gain experience, develop your skill set, and gain a clearer picture of what you like and don't like in terms of career options.

For example, you can get involved in some of the many student clubs and societies in college, volunteer or get a part time job. Remember that voluntary work is as valuable as paid work on your CV or resume - it's a great way to demonstrate your skills to future employers. Have a look at the TCD Civic Engagement website and check out volunteering opportunities in Ireland and abroad.
