National College of Ireland's graduation ceremony will take place in The Convention Centre Dublin on Thursday 24th November 2022.

The number of ceremonies and times will be confirmed soon subject to Government Guidelines.

NCI Graduation is an opportunity to celebrate and recognise the hard work you have done to complete your course and gain your qualification. All graduands will receive communication regarding the graduation ceremony, gowning, photography, and receiving their parchment over the coming weeks. 

Graduation Tickets

All graduands will be able to purchase a ticket for your National College of Ireland graduation ceremony for €60. Your ticket will admit you and two guests to your graduation ceremony and will also cover the cost of your academic gown on the day.

The dates of purchase are to be confirmed soon.

Graduation and Covid-19 Guidelines

Considering the recent changes to Covid-19 restrictions, all graduates and guests are not required to provide a Covid vaccination certificate or proof of immunity and photo ID upon arrival to The Convention Centre Dublin for the National College of Ireland Graduation. Mask wearing is no longer mandatory for all graduates and guests throughout the duration of the Graduation Ceremony. This is subject to change, in line with Government guidelines.  

Please note that if you or your guests are displaying any Covid-19 symptoms or are feeling unwell leading up to the Graduation, we would ask that you do not attend the ceremony.

All graduation ceremonies will be live streamed online so that those who are unable to attend the CCD can watch the celebrations.

A link for each ceremony will be provided closer to the time. Please make sure to check this page regularly for updates.
