As Samuel Beckett put it, Trinity is for “the cream of Ireland, rich and thick”, and whether you believe that or not, Trinity students are certainly different.

In a university that resembles Hogwarts more than Trinity College Dublin at times, there are umpteen secrets and injokes about it that students revel in knowing.

So, whether you're still there whiling away the hours on Facebook on Ussher 3, or out in the big bad world with a degree plastered on the wall - here are a number of things you'll seriously appreciate having studied there...

1. Bypassing a particularly awkward group of American tourists with ease
