October 2021 conferring ceremonies

Due to the scheduled easing of public health restrictions on 22nd October 2021, Maynooth University has taken the decision that the October 2021 conferring ceremonies will be in-person events on the University campus. Ceremonies will take place on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th October. All ceremonies will be live-streamed online for those who are unable to attend.  

The full Schedule of Ceremonies providing details of ceremony times, dates and awards to be conferred at each ceremony in October will be available shortly on the Schedule of Ceremonies webpage.

All students due to be conferred in October 2021 will receive an email (to their MU email address only) from the Conferring Office approximately three weeks before their conferring date. Students are advised to check this website and their MU student email account regularly for updates.

Please note: students with outstanding fees will not be conferred unless the fee balance has been cleared in advance of the ceremony.

  • The full Schedule of Ceremonies for October providing details of dates and awards to be conferred at each ceremony will be available in the coming days on the Schedule of Ceremonies webpage. 
  • All students due to be conferred in  October 2021 will receive an email (to MU email only) from the Conferring Office approximately three weeks before their conferring date. Students are encouraged to check their MU student email account regularly.
  • Please ensure that any outstanding tuition fees are paid in advance, as parchments will not be sent to any student who has outstanding fees and you will not have graduated until you have cleared your fees balance.
  • Please ensure that all outstanding loans are returned to the Library. Items can be returned via standard mail or ask library.information@mu.ie for any other means of return.

 
2020 and 2021 Graduates who were conferred in virtual ceremonies

The University is committed to offering an on-campus ceremony to students who were conferred virtually in 2020 and 2021.

Planning for these ceremonies is currently underway and it is anticipated that these events will take place from Monday 24th to Saturday 29th January 2022.  All ceremonies will be live-streamed online for those who are unable to attend.
All graduates who wish to attend an on-campus ceremony in January 2022 must complete this MS Form by Wednesday 1st December 2021.  The planning for each ceremony will be based on the responses received. This means that any graduate who does not complete this form by the deadline will not be included in the ceremonies in January 2022.

Once the Schedule of Ceremonies has been finalised in December, all graduates will receive an email from the Conferring Office providing them with details of their on-campus event.  Information will also be updated on the Conferring Office webpages when it is available.
Graduates are advised to check the Conferring Office website in the first instance and also their email account for further updates.

Email information: All students who were due to be conferred at the cancelled March 2020 ceremonies will be contacted using their personal email.  All other graduates will receive details to their MU student email account.

Please note: students with outstanding fees will not be able to attend the on-campus ceremonies, as they are not formally conferred until all fee balances are cleared.
