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.

Initial details for our 2020 conferral ceremonies can be found below.

Why not watch our video below for an insight into Dublin's 2016 conferral and to hear the stories of just some of our graduates.
