Conferring 2020 and COVID-19 Guidelines
As you will be aware the College postponed the conferring ceremonies from last November to this February in the hope that we would be able to have more streamlined, face to face ceremonies over the course of two days. Unfortunately, it comes as no surprise that the public health situation has very much deteriorated and under Level 5 restrictions there is no scope for even a scaled back ceremony to be held face-to-face. Consequently, we have been left with no option other than to have a virtual ceremony. We will however, subject to prevailing public health advice at the time, plan for a social event for class groups at the College come the summer. If you have not received the following information via your personal email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to update your details.
St. Angela’s College Conferring ceremony will now take place virtually on Friday 19th February 2021 with class groups graduating as follows:
- BNSc (General)
- BNSc (Intellectual Disability)
- BN International
- B.Applied Sc (Nutrition, Food and Business Management)
- BA (Education, Home Economics and Biology / Gaeilge / Economics / Religious Education)
- PME (Home Economics)
- Postgraduate Certificates
- Postgraduate Diplomas
The ceremonies will be streamed live and will be accessible through a link which will be emailed to you and available on our website and social media platforms. You are asked to join either ceremony at 11.00am or 3.00pm depending on which class you are graduating from.
There will be an online Mass at 10am celebrated by Bishop Doran for all graduates and the link for this will be circulated in advance of the ceremony and again via social media platforms.
