On today's campus, state-of-the-art libraries, laboratories and IT facilities, stand alongside historic buildings on a city-centre 47-arc campus. Inter-disciplinarity forms a key element in the College strategy in increasing Trinity's international standing as a research-led university. TCD has developed significant international strength in its research in eight major themes which include globalization; cancer; genetics; neuroscience; immunology and infection; communications and intelligent system; nano and materials science as well as Irish culture and the creative arts.
Its current flagship interdisciplinary research institutes are in areas such as molecular medicine, neuroscience and international integration studies and nano structures and nano devices. The university is home to an innovative public venue, the Science Gallery, which brings together people from all walks of life to explore the influence of science, engineering and technology in the modern world. Priority themes within Engineering include, energy, bio-engineering, telecommunications, construction, the environment and digital media. The accessibility of a Trinity education to all students of ability is also very important. Trinity College was the first university in Ireland to reserve 15 percent of first year undergraduate places for students from non-traditional learning groups - students with a disability, socio-economically disadvantaged students as well as mature students. The College has met its target in this respect. there is also an exciting international mix of its student body where 16 percent of student are from outside Ireland and 40 of these students are from outside the European Union. TCD students also have an opportunity to study abroad in other leading European universities through Trinity's partnership agreements.
