Registration for Graduation will be open in early August. Once you have received your invitation email you will be able to register via the RISISweb portal.   

Log in using the encrypted link in your email. Instructions for registering are included in your invitation email.

Please register on the RISISweb portal by Friday 1 September.

All graduands can request two guests tickets. Extra tickets, if available, are allocated on a first come first served basis shortly before the ceremonies. For more information on tickets, view our tickets page.

Please ensure your email and postal address details are correct in your RISISweb Portal.

Please note: Emails cannot be accepted in place of the official registration process on the RISISweb Portal.

If you want to attend the ceremonies

If you are not sure if you wish to attend it is better to register to attend and then change your mind at a later date as guest tickets can only be allocated if you request them and register before the deadline.

If you want to graduate in absence

Register to graduate in absence on the RISISweb portal by Friday 1 September.

  • After the ceremonies have taken place, your certificate will be posted to your permanent home address, unless you instruct us otherwise.

Please note: If you want to graduate in absence you must register via the RISISweb portal to graduate in absence.

Your certificate will not be posted unless you have registered to graduate in absence.

If you want to graduate at a future ceremony

  • If you are unable to attend your graduation ceremony, or have not yet finished your course and wish to defer to a future ceremony, please register on the RISISweb portal by Friday 1 September.

You will not be able to defer after this date and will graduate in absence in September 2017.

Please note: If you defer your graduation, you will not receive your certificate until you officially graduate at a future ceremony.

If you choose to defer your graduation, the next Greenlands Graduation ceremonies will be in September 2018
