Spring Graduation 2023

NCI's Spring graduation ceremony will take place on the 6th April 2023.

NCI Graduation Ceremony

National College of Ireland's graduation ceremony will take place in The Convention Centre Dublin on Thursday 6th April 2023.

There will be two sessions throughout the day. The schedule of the sessions will be available soon.

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 third week of February 2023. 

Graduation Tickets

Graduation ticket sales are now live and you can purchase tickets through our official Eventbrite site here.

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.
