Welcome to the University of Limerick Ceremonies website. Ceremonies at the University comprise three distinct types of event: graduate conferrings, honorary conferrings and inaugural lectures.
Graduate conferrings are held three times a year - in August (autumn conferrings), in January (winter conferrings) and in June (summer conferrings). These joyous occasions represent an important transition for UL graduands who have completed their studies and are about to embark on the next phase of their lives.
The next conferring ceremony at the University of Limerick will be the Summer Conferring and will take place on Tuesday 11 June 2013.
Honorary conferrings at the University of Limerick are held once a year. The aim of these prestigious occasions is to bestow honorary degrees on individuals who have shown outstanding achievement, nationally or internationally, in the arts, sciences, business, industry, the professions, sport, social service or public service.
Inaugural lectures at the University of Limerick are significant occasions for academic staff. They provide newly appointed professors with the opportunity to inform their colleagues, the campus community and the general public of their work to date, including current research and future plans.
