You are allowed to bring a maximum of two guests to the RDS on the day of your ceremony – this is due to numbers attending, room capacity and the need to manage health and safety at the event. Unfortunately, additional guests cannot be accommodated.
Parking is available at the RDS on a fee-paying basis. Please refer to: https://www.rds.ie/getting-here/parking for more information.
The IADT Conferring Ceremony will take place on Friday 17 November 2023 in the RDS Concert Hall, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.
The RDS is located in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 and is easily accessible via bus, car or DART. Detailed information on how to get to the RDS can be found at: https://www.rds.ie/getting-here#location
Your ceremony will be held in the Concert Hall – you will enter via the Anglesea Road Entrance into the Registration Room and then on to Gowning and Photography.
You are required to be registered and robed one hour prior to the ceremony. We advise that you arrive 1.5 hours before the start time of the ceremony in order to park, register etc. At registration, you’ll also be given a seat number ticket which you should keep safely with you.
The ceremony will be organised as follows:
- You will need to register your attendance (and that of your guests) via the Registration form on your invitation. Please ensure you have registered by noon Friday 27th October at the latest.
- You should arrive at the RDS at least 1.5 hours before the start of the ceremony.
- On arrival, you will be directed to sign in for the event. Please bring with you your confirmation email of attendance (which you will receive following completion of this form).
- You will then be directed to the gowning space where you will gown.
- It’s a good idea to have your photos taken by the official photographer before the ceremony.
- All graduands and guests need to be seated in ceremony room at least 10 minutes before the start of the ceremony.
- At the start of the ceremony, the IADT President, Registrar (or his nominee) and Heads of Department will enter and take their seats on the stage.
- Each graduand will be awarded their parchment by the President.
- A member of the conferring team will organise you in a row, ready to move to the front of the room to accept your parchment from the President when your name is called.
- When the ceremony concludes, you should leave the room. Tea and coffee will be served to graduates and their guests.
- Please return your gown to the gowning room before you leave to continue your celebrations offsite.
All students must wear a gown during the ceremony. Graduands may also wear a cap if they wish, it is entirely your choice.
All gown hires for the IADT conferring are booked through Phelan Conan Ltd. There is a hire fee, please visit http://www.phelanconan.com and select ‘graduate gown hire’ to book your gown. It will be possible to book your gown for the IADT Conferring ceremony from Phelan Conan Ltd. from Monday 16th October. The deadline for booking your gown is Tuesday 14th November 2023. Your gown will be available to collect at the RDS on the day of the conferring.
Lafayette Photography is the official photographer for your conferring. It is advisable to book and pre-pay your photography in advance at www.lafayette.ie. Payments on the day must be made by debit/credit card only. The photography studios at the RDS will be open two hours before the ceremony. You can have your photos taken before (scrolls are provided for this purpose) or after the ceremony.
*Note – all hire and payments for gowns and photography is via the respective companies and not IADT directly
Tea/coffee and biscuits will be served at the end of the ceremony outside the conferring space.
If you are unable to attend in person, your parchment will be awarded in absentia. It is vital that you complete the registration form so that we can issue you your parchment at a later date. If you don’t send us this information, we will store your parchment for you until such time as you are able to collect it.
Photography and filming may take place throughout the event. These will be used by IADT for the purpose of promoting its activities and may be published on the Institute’s website and circulated to the press and other media organisations for publication, transmission or broadcast. If you do not wish to appear in the photographs or films, please avoid the areas where photography / filming are taking place.
