Your conferral is your chance to celebrate and recognise all the hard work that went in to achieving your qualification.

Conferral ceremonies are highlight events in Local Institute's calendars and are proud occasions for both graduates and their families. A graduation ceremony will be held for each of our Local Institutes - Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Sligo.

Dates and details for our 2019 conferral ceremonies are posted below.*
