Graduation Celebration Event June 2022

Graduation Celebration Event June 2022

DCU graduation ceremonies are very special occasions for our graduands, their families and our DCU faculty colleagues. Unfortunately, COVID-19 public health restrictions meant that DCU has been unable to hold in person graduation ceremonies since the Autumn ceremonies of November 2019.

Planning is underway to host events to celebrate the achievements of our graduates of Spring and Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021. 

While many have since moved on to further studies, research or employment we want to offer the opportunity to celebrate these achievements at an in person event on campus in June 2022.  

We are planning a number of events at the Helix on DCU's Glasnevin campus confirmed to take place on June 8th, 9th and from June 13th to 15th.  

​The exact format of the events will be communicated when we have a clearer sense of the numbers planning to attend, but will certainly include the wearing of robes, photography, recognition of academic achievements, guest ticket allocation and the opportunity to celebrate in person​.  

While your graduation has been completed and academically recognised by the University this event will provide the opportunity to return to DCU to mark that achievement, to reconnect with your lecturers, mentors, class, research supervisor etc which was denied to you because of the pandemic.

All future communications on this event will be sent to your DCU email address and to your preferred email address entered on the event webform. If you wish to update your details please visit
