Graduate Destination Survey

The process for conducting our annual Graduate Destination Survey has changed.  All Higher Education Institutions throughout Ireland have now adopted a uniform format.  From April 2019, you will be sent an email inviting you to complete the short survey online.  Your responses will be very important as they will help to determine planning for future course provision and influence regional employment policy.  The graduate survey will also enable you to provide valuable feedback on your experience as a student at LYIT.  All data is anonymised, so no personal or identifying information will be shared.  Personal information about named individuals will also not be shared.  If you are in agreement for the college to contact you regarding the graduate survey, please click on this link

A Conferring Seating Plan will be available here prior to the conferring.  We ask all graduands to check their seat allocation before the ceremony.  Please ensure that you are seated in the hall 20 minutes before the commencement of your session for a brief rehearsal.
