Registration for Awards
Graduates of the class of 2018, full or component QQI awards, are invited to register online – whether they are attending or wish to receive their awards by post. The registration form also includes an important short follow-up survey used to compile statistics for the Department of Education and Skills.
The deadline for confirmation for those attending is Thursday the 30th of August 2018.
Night school graduations will be announced separately.
Don’t forget to share online that you’re attending. Add yourself to our Facebook event at https://www.facebook.com/events/326534397888618/ and be kept informed of updates and of photographs from the night.
Graduates are invited to bring a maximum of two guests (aged 12 or over).

Q. Why is there is a limit of 2 guests over 12 years of age?
A. We realise that this is an important day for you and all your family but we are restricted by venue space and safety concerns. We know that you will continue your celebration with your family and friends on the day around the few hours of the conferring ceremony itself.
Q. Is there a dress code?
A. Of course not (this is the 21st Century). But this is a night to celebrate your achievements. You are the reason we are here for the conferring – so of course you are invited to enjoy the excuse to dress up and look your best. You’re the star of the show.
A word of caution though, for anyone considering high heels: there are two flights of stairs to navigate on the procession of graduates into the hall on the night. You might want to only wear shoes in which are you expert.
