Each year, our conferring ceremonies are the highlight of the University calendar, with about 6,000 graduates receiving their parchments and celebrating their academic achievements. We fully understand that for you, graduation is a culmination of many years of hard work and the capstone of your University experience to date. Like you, most students complete their educational journey with the support of those close to them, so it is also a celebration for families, partners and friends.


Unfortunately, due to COVID19, our normal graduation ceremonies cannot now take place safely and within current public health guidelines. However, Technological University Dublin is committed to ensuring that you can still graduate in 2020. In consultation with the TU Dublin Students’ Union, we plan to provide an alternate virtual graduation ceremony, and we intend to ensure that it is as memorable an occasion as is possible in these unprecedented circumstances.


The likely dates for these revised 2020 conferring ceremonies will be during the week commencing Monday, 23 November 2020. As soon as arrangements are confirmed in the coming weeks, those eligible to graduate will receive details on how the event will be managed, how their success will be marked, and how to access graduation robes.


Recognising that the option of a virtual graduation ceremony is not what you had planned as a celebration of your achievement, we plan to organise a separate ‘live’ event for the class of 2020 next year, subject to the lifting of current COVID19 restrictions. This event will be an opportunity for you to celebrate in the company of your friends, classmates and lecturers. We would hope this exceptional event can take place before the end of June 2021.

Meanwhile, we would like to congratulate you on your achievements and on the resilience you have shown in this extraordinary year. We look forward to seeing you at the conferring of awards in November.
