Trinity Board Agrees Name Change

Trinity College Dublin has provisionally approved a name change to the University of Dublin, as part of a global rebranding initiative.

The board of the college approved the changes, which will now be put to staff ahead of final approval.

The change would see the college use the name 'Trinity College, University of Dublin', and is understood to be driven by confusion internationally, that use of the word "college" means Trinity is not a university.
