Maynooth University Conferring 2021

Congratulations on your success in completing your programme of study at Maynooth University. 

We hope you found your study with us enjoyable, challenging and rewarding and that it will be beneficial to you in whatever you plan for the future.


As you know, we cannot have the normal in-person conferring ceremony this Autumn, for public health reasons.

When the public health situation allows, we will invite you back to the campus for another ceremony, which will give you the opportunity to come on stage in academic robes, and to celebrate with family and friends.


Until then, to mark your achievement, the University is holding the formal Maynooth University Summer Conferring 2021 ceremony online, which we hope you and your family and friends will enjoy.

You can view the live ceremony by selecting the appropriate live stream below. After the live ceremony, you can view a the recording here in the same place.

“The analytical skills of Geography, the
logic skills of Music, and of course the education degrees had an impact, but it was also the cross-cutting skills that I learned at Maynooth that I think have been so helpful.”

“The problem solving and critical thinking I developed during my time at Maynooth University made my career possible”

Brian Pennie

Motivational Speaker, Author, PhD candidate

“I couldn’t have done it without Maynooth University. I was an ‘aggressive learner,’ but my lecturers were incredibly patient with me, and always gave me their time. I have
such fond memories of my time in Maynooth.”
