Information Systems Programme




Lectures and tutorials are normally held on up to three evenings per week over 22 weeks of the year. You should be aware that additional project work and study time will also be required.

Self-study and e-resources

You should be aware that project work and study time will be required in addition to the times mentioned above. Trinity College stresses the value of face-to-face contact between staff and students, for the educational and motivational value it brings.

However, we recognise also that in today's busy world many students find it useful to take advantage of the convenience that online study can offer. Accordingly, we make a range of resources available to students for secure online access, which complements teaching delivered by traditional means.


This syllabus is designed for students joining the programme in the academic year 2015/16, but may change over the period of the programme. It is subject to frequent review in order to reflect the changing needs of the rapidly-evolving IT/IS field.
