Preparing for the day

Welcome to the Autumn 2021 Conferring Ceremonies! There are a few practicalities to consider ahead of your ceremony.

Ceremony for Last Years Graduates

There is a ceremony on Friday 29 October at 5pm for students who graduated virtually over the past year. Approximately 190 ACE graduates have signed up to attend this. The schedule of courses involved can be viewed here.

Public Health Guidelines for 29 October

A number of important Public Health safety measures and controls will be in operation on the day to ensure you, your guests, and UCC staff remain safe during these challenging times:

  • If you, or your guests are unwell and are experiencing COVID related symptoms, do not attend on-site and if you become ill at any time during the event please leave campus and seek medical advice
  • Face coverings must be worn by all at all times whilst indoors and are strongly recommended to be worn at other times where it is difficult to maintain adequate social distance. Face coverings can be removed whist eating or drinking where appropriate
  • All graduates and guests will be required to provide evidence of a COVID-19 vaccine/recovery certificate with accompanying Photo-ID to access indoor activities. These indoor activities include accessing photography and gowns and attending the conferring ceremony in Devere Hall

Check In Arrangements for 29 October

All graduates and their guests will be required to report to our check-in desk on arrival, which will be based outside the Hub building on campus. Your COVID-19 vaccine/recovery certificate status and Photo-Id will be checked and entrance tickets will be issued to you and your guests. You must retain your entrance ticket to access all indoor settings on the day of your ceremony. This ticket also permits your two guests access to the ceremony and all indoor settings.

We will not be hosting an indoor reception but will operate a take away service from the Aula Maxima where graduates and their two guests can avail of light refreshments and network in the marquee to the rear of the Aula-Maxima.
