Virtual Graduation Day 2020

The Autumn conferring of awards ceremonies took place virtually on 6th November 2020.

We are sorry that we are unable to hold our conferring ceremonies in the normal way this year. Graduands will be conferred during ceremonies held on the 6th November which can be viewed online. 

It is important that the formal elements of conferring are completed so that graduands are formally conferred with their award and can receive their parchment which will enable them to progress to work or further study with their award. 

Graduands are not required to wear gowns for the virtual conferring ceremony.  However, if the graduand would like to hire a gown for their conferring for photographs with family or to commemorate the day, details of how to do this can be found in the Graduate Robing section below.

The schedule of ceremonies is as follows:

10:00 School of Health and Social Sciences
12:00 School of Business, Computing & Humanities
14:00 School of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics

Details of the ceremony and how to access the link will be sent to the graduand (to their IT Tralee student email address) later this month and this webpage will also be updated with the links.  Graduands are free to share the ceremony links with family and friends in any location.

Receiving the Parchment of your Award

Following the official conferring on 6th November, the graduate will receive by post the official Parchment Award document. 

If the Graduates mailing or postal address is different to when they were a student, the Change of Address form (emailed to your student email account) should be completed before 5pm on Friday 16th October 2020.

The Parchment Document should be minded as there is a charge of €65 to re-print the embossed document.
