Virtual November Conferrings

  • Location: Online

Graduation is always the highlight in our University calendar. It is a special and proud occasion for us to celebrate with you, your families and friends.

Due to restrictions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with great regret that we are unable to hold the November 2020 graduation ceremonies in person.

Since the beginning of this pandemic RCSI’s mission has been to safeguard the health and safety of our students and staff. Our primary concern is your well-being, so we believe this action is necessary to protect your health and the health and well-being of your families and friends. Given the Government advice to contain the spread of COVID 19 and the recommendation to avoid large gatherings we believe this decision is necessary to support you, our healthcare professionals.

While we are deeply disappointed that we cannot share this special day with our graduates in person, we are looking forward to marking the occasion and celebrating your success online with you – to recognise the strength and resilience you have all demonstrated in this challenging academic year.
