We are proud of the fact that the Trinity College experience clearly plays a pivotal role in the growth of our students as learners, researchers and scholars. You will have many opportunities to learn outside the classroom. You can attend special lectures and meet our distinguished speakers, participate in community outreach programs such as Humanities for Humanity, and join research and conference opportunities associated with your academic program, such as attending G8 summit conferences and Model UN assemblies.
Getting involved in internships, research opportunities and experiential learning programs will help you prepare for your future. Trinity students have been involved in amazing research projects, most recently in the Arctic, Rwanda and Brazil. You will also have many research and experiential learning opportunities, including international experience through Trinity’s Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarship Program and the Mitacs Globalinks Research Award. Trinity’s Comprehensive Paper and Independent Studies Program will allow you to work directly with one of our outstanding faculty mentors in research areas that are of interest to you. The Faculty of Arts & Science also offers the Research Opportunity Program (ROP), which provides students in their second and third year the opportunity to work closely with a professor (supervisor) on a research project in return for a course credit.
For experiential learning opportunities, students can apply for financial support, such as funding to assist with attendance at conferences, service learning and study abroad programs.
Additional resources and opportunities are available on the U of T Experiential Learning Hub.
