Graduation 2018

The 2018 IT Sligo Graduation ceremonies will be held in the Knocknarea Arena on 1st and 2nd November.


Ticketmaster will write to all Graduates in October to their home address. This letter will contain a web link and unique password for retrieving their Guest Ticket Booking. One ticket will admit two guests. Please be advised that there will be no entry to graduation without a valid ticket booked through Ticketmaster.

Due to Health and Safety the numbers permitted into Knocknarea is limited. As you can understand our priority is to ensure every graduate attending is in a position to bring their guests. One ticket permits two guests however when everyone is seated and  should we any free seats we will then allow all the additional seats to be filled. In the event that the hall is full, the entire ceremony will be streamed live and will available to watch, on campus, in the Hume Hall.

Seat numbers will be allocated to graduands on the day. It is essential that graduates should occupy their allocated seat to ensure the smooth flow of the recipients of awards to and from the Conferring Stage. Graduates are asked to be seated 30 minutes before the commencement of the Ceremony.

Graduates and their families are invited to attend a reception on campus after each session.
