Information for Graduates
Autumn Conferrings 2020
Congratulations to all Autumn 2020 graduates. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the graduates were conferred in absentia on Tuesday, 11 August 2020 by the University of Limerick. The conferring booklet, which presents a list of the graduates, is available here.
The booklet includes a messages of congratulation from Professor Patrick Ryan, Associate Vice President Student Engagement. On behalf of the University, Professor Ryan extends his congratulations to all graduates on their wonderful achievement and states that "Graduation is a testament to talent, skill, perseverance, determination and will. It represents sacrifices and achievements – regularly small, occasionally big – that culminate in your work being validated by the most stringent of academic processes as being worthy of a degree award. To graduate at any time is significant and calls for celebration. To graduate in 2020 against the backdrop of a global pandemic that has shaken the foundations of predictability in our society brings an added sense of achievement to what is already a wonderful success story – your story, first as a student, more recently a graduand, and from today, a graduate." Professor Ryan concludes by encouraging the graduates to "relish the memory of the best of times and acknowledge your resilience in the challenges".
