Select Lebanese students will likely soon have the opportunity to study abroad in Ireland at no additional cost.The provost of Ireland's oldest university described such reciprocal exchange programs as a "very cost-effective way for Lebanese to get international experience [as] they don't have to pay international tuition fees".Under the arrangement, Lebanese students would pay the tuition fees at their home university, while spending either a semester or a year abroad at Trinity's city center campus in Dublin.Prendergast also pointed out that, in addition to the potential exchange program, Trinity will soon be advertising 40 scholarships for doctoral students.
