Congratulations to all our students due to graduate in 2020…

We’re doing things a bit differently this year.

Our annual graduation ceremonies are coming together for an online event Thursday 5th November!*

We want you to share your biggest success and best experience studying with Batchelor Institute.

Post your memories and photos to Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #BIG2020 or #BIGraduation (Batchelor Institute Graduation) and we’ll share your posts on our website and across our social media. You may also feature in our online event.

Students will be contacted with details and invitations to the online event shortly. Some of you may choose to wait until 2021 and see if you can graduate on campus.

We can’t wait to celebrate your achievements along with you, your families and friends, so if you can, join our online event.

If you have any questions, contact the Student Administration team on P: 08 8939 7215 or by emailing

More details about the 5th of November online graduation are coming soon.

We look forward to celebrating with you on the day.
*Graduands will be able to defer their graduation ceremony to next year’s event (hopefully on campus) if they prefer. If you are due to graduate and you have moved address since finishing your course, please contact the Institute to update your details.

Radio interview by Radio Larrikia

Lecturer Patrick McKenzie and students Darryl Tait and Ben Robinson were interviewed live-on-air on Larrakia Radio. Students were also given a tour of the state-of-the-art television and radio studios at Aboriginal Broadcasting Australia. They also had a behind-the-scenes experience of what’s it like to work in the media industry as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person.
