GMIT holding online graduation for over 1,800 students

More than 1,800 students at GMIT will be conferred with their awards online in a series of virtual graduation ceremonies this month.

GMIT’s annual conferring ceremonies will take place fully online this year, with 14 virtual sessions taking place from November 24 – 28.

Higher certificate, degree and postgraduate awards will be given out in over 120 courses in Business, Engineering, Creative Arts & Media, Furniture Design & Technology, Hotel, Heritage & Tourism studies, Nursing, Health Sciences & Social Care, and Science & Computing.

GMIT Student Affairs Manager Debbie Molloy said that the graduation is the most “celebrated event” in the IoT’s academic calendar.

“Virtual graduation ceremonies are a first for GMIT, and while staff and management are disappointed that it is not possible to celebrate this special occasion with graduates in person, the graduation team have endeavoured to create a personalised event that captures the significant achievements of the Class of 2020”.

The full schedule is available on https://www.gmit.ie/general/graduation-schedule-2020.

The ceremonies will be available to view on GMIT’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.

“It is our hope that the online ceremony is a memorable one for graduates and their families,” Debbie Molloy said.

“I would like to thank the staff in GMIT, Tadhg from Keady Audio Visual Services and Proactive Design and Marketing for the assistance in creating this virtual event.”
