Student Life

Trocaire students engaging in conversation with each other.

Start your Trocaire story.

Our students may come from different places and walks of life, but they have two very important things in common: a willingness to work hard and commitment to learning new things. 

At Trocaire, they find a place of inspiration and a source of support. Despite busy lives, family obligations and work responsibilities, they learn in class and labs and from real-life clinical experiences and service opportunities. 

They discover how to be critical thinkers. To continually evolve their abilities. And to take big leaps into bold new futures. 

If you’re ready to be one of them, you won’t be alone. You’ll have the support and mentorship you need, plus new and valuable connections with your fellow students. 

You’ll graduate ready to not just change your life, but also your community and the world around you.

This is where lifelong learning is encouraged. Where new paths are forged. And where careers of achievement and lives of purpose begin.

People may ask themselves, ‘Can I go back to school with work and a family?’ I would tell people that you definitely can. And it’s not just because of the flexibility Trocaire offers. Flexibility only goes so far. It’s because of the support.
