Graduate Conferrings

Message from President Professor Kerstin Mey

Congratulations to our latest cohort of graduates at the University of Limerick. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the graduates were conferred in absentia by the University on Tuesday, 8 June 2021, via online conferring ceremonies. The conferring booklet, which presents a list of the graduates, is available here.

The booklet includes a message of congratulation from UL President Professor Kerstin Mey. On behalf of all staff and students of the university, Professor Mey warmly congratulates the award recipients and encourages them to be very proud of their achievement, noting that the day marks a significant milestone on their personal journeys of growth. Professor Mey also takes the opportunity to remind graduates that their achievement is of importance to society as they embark on new experiences in novel and challenging contexts – as part of a team, as leaders and as engaged citizens.

Professor Mey welcomes the new graduates to a global community of approximately 109,500 alumni of the University of Limerick – people who contribute to and make a difference to the lives of individuals, communities and nations on a daily basis. She encourages the graduates to participate in the shared experience of being a graduate of UL and to continue their quest for lifelong learning.

Unofficial photographers try to ply a trade in the grounds and car parks of the University on conferring day. In the past, graduates have complained of non-delivery and poor quality of photos from these photographers. The University accepts no responsibility for arrangements made by graduates with unofficial photographers. Graduates are strongly advised to deal only with the official photographers.
