QQI are the awarding body for all NCI Programmes, and they issue parchments for all graduands. It is a very important document that is only produced once and if it is lost or misplaced it may not be possible to get a duplicate.

Please note if you have opted to exit with the postgraduate award your parchment may not be available at graduation. Please refer to this article for more information.


When do I get my parchment?

At the time of the graduation ceremony:

  • Graduands who complete their programme in February will be invited to the graduation ceremony in Spring
  • Graduands who complete their programme in June and Sept/October will be invited to the graduation ceremony in November

The NCI website is updated information on graduation. Students can contact the graduation team by email at
