Trinity College, located in Dublin, is an interesting landmark of Ireland. Founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I, it is part of the Dublin University. Together they are considered the oldest and most prestigious educational institutions of the country.
Best in the country
Only a few people know that the full name of the institution is very long, and you can only meet it on official papers. The college includes six faculties of different profiles: philology, cybernetics, humanities, natural sciences, cybernetics and engineering. Only those who have completed secondary education in Britain or Ireland can enter it.
One of the interesting facts of college history is that as full-fledged students, women were allowed here in 1904. It was the first educational institution in Europe, which allowed them to receive higher education.
Trinity College, however, like the whole university, is one of the best educational institutions not only in Europe but also in the world. Its graduates were such world-known people as Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde, great scientists: in the field of medicine - Denis Barkitt, mathematician William Hamilton, and Berkeley, who founded Californian University of Berkeley, and the first president of Ireland, Douglas Hyde.
