Graduations at Dublin City University

Graduations are a huge milestone in the DCU journey - a culmination of years of hard work and an opportunity to celebrate your achievements with your classmates, friends and family.

The DCU University Events team, together with our colleagues in Registry, manage your graduation celebration end to end, ensuring a lasting, memorable experience for all of our graduands.

Our next graduations will take place from 23 to 26 October 2023. The full schedule is below. If you are graduating this autumn, you will receive full details about your ceremony and links to book guests tickets in an email sent to your address in early September



Please note, all graduands should arrive on campus at least one hour before the ceremony, and must be registered and seated 20 minutes before the ceremony start time.
