FOR the first time in two years since the COVID-19 Pandemic began, University of Limerick, (UL) will finally be hosting In-Person graduation ceremonies.
This week there will be 1,700 students graduating from UL. These students are from the faculties of Education and Health Sciences, Kemmy Business School, Science and Engineering and Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
Five ceremonies are to be held this week in UL and it is expected that 700 students will attend the In-Person ceremonies. The ceremonies are limited to students who are graduating only to minimize the threat of COVID-19.
Students who are attending have been advised to take an antigen test on the morning of their graduation to ensure that they do not have Covid-19. If a student tests positive or has symptoms of Covid-19, they should not attend the ceremonies.
Students will also need their Digital COVID Certificate to prove their vaccination status in order to gain entry to the University Concert Hall. Face coverings must be worn at all times by students and staff at the events.
