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

There will be four sessions throughout the day. Please see below the scheduled ceremony times and make note of your ceremony session.

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 within the second week of October 2022. 

Graduation Tickets

Graduation ticket sales are now closed.

If you have purchased a ticket, this will admit you and two guests to your graduation ceremony and will also cover the cost of your academic gown on the day.

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.

Watch Graduation Ceremonies

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

The Live Stream has now ended.

Videos of each graduation ceremony can be viewed in the tabs at the end of the page.

We would also like to bring your attention the NCI Graduation Ball which will be taking place on November 25th in the fabulous Clontarf Castle Hotel.

The Ball is one of our most successful events which sells out every year and more importantly, it’s a great opportunity for you and your classmates to get together and celebrate your success in style!

Attendees will be treated to the full red-carpet experience beginning with a prosecco reception, professional photographer and music by the Bugle Babes. There will be entertainment throughout the night which will include a gala dinner in the Great Hall accompanied by the Manilla Strings Mariachi Band and photo booth. You will then dance the night away with DejaBoo followed by a DJ and finally we will host a trad session in the bar to complete the evening’s festivities!

Tickets are available now through Eventbrite here. Graduands can book tickets for both themselves and their guests – do hurry – the graduation ball is always a sell out and over 65% of the tickets have sold to date. 

If you would like to ensure you and your friends are seated together, we are very happy to accommodate you. Please send the name of all 8-12 people who have bought tickets to graduationball@ncirl.ie.
