Congratulations Graduates
You made it

Following the recent government announcement, we can confirm we will be proceeding with the in-person conferring ceremonies on November 22nd , 23rd, and 24th.

Update 17 November 2021

All students will be required to show a vaccine certificate including Photo ID, or proof of recovery from COVID-19 within the previous 6 months to attend graduation at the Radisson Blu Hotel.

All attendees must also wear masks when sitting in the Graduation Ballroom but can remove their masks to walk up and receive their parchment (under review).

We look forward to welcoming all graduating students on the day.

Note:  Gowns can NOT be collected Sunday evening, they can be collected at the Radisson Hotel, starting 10am Monday Nov. 22nd.

We are delighted to announce that all graduating students will now be invited to an in person ceremony to receive their parchments. This will take place between the 22nd, 23rd and 24th November 2021.


Only Students who have pre-registered will be admitted. 

(No registration, no entry).


The conferring will take in the ballroom of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Sligo and will take place in multiple ceremonies across three days with 200 students each session.

 Unfortunately, space will not be available for family and friends of the graduating student.


The event will be streamed live for family, friends and students to follow on their own devices. 

Due to the number of ceremonies taking place each day, graduates will be requested to leave the venue immediately after their ceremony, unless they have a lunch or dinner booking arranged with the Radisson hotel.
