Welcome to the UCD Conferring Unit

Conferring ceremonies are joyous occasions when the University community assembles to honour its new graduates. The conferring of degrees is a ceremony of special significance for the graduates, their families and friends, for the academic staff who have guided the graduates to their degrees, and for the many others who contribute to the life of University College Dublin. The ceremonies are great public occasions for the University, to which we welcome our guests who are visiting our campus, some perhaps for the first time.

The role of the Conferring Unit is to plan and organise the conferring ceremonies for over 7,000 graduates per annum.   After your graduation we would like to invite you to stay in touch with UCD and to connect with your fellow alumni through the UCD Alumni Network, a new online platform which will allow UCD alumni to stay connected with classmates, get connected with UCD graduates across the globe, and expand professional networks.  UCD Alumni Relations has a global network of over 279,000 alumni in over 169 countries - as you start to make your mark on the world, stay in touch with us and let us know how you are getting on.
