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.

Friends and family members of graduands can send their congratulations and well wishes by tagging @NCIRL and including #NCIGrad2024 in your posts on social media.
