March Graduation

On 15 March, in response to COVID-19, the Department of Education and Training advised that all non-essential organised gatherings of 500 or more people should be cancelled from Monday 16 March. This does not include TAFEs running normal teaching and learning programs, however it does apply to any TAFE event that involves the attendance of community members who are not students or staff, and where the total attendance will be over 500.

These measures are intended to protect the health of our students, staff and the broader community.

We therefore regret to advise that in line with formal advice from the Department of Education and Training and Health authorities, Chisholm Institute is postponing the Graduation Ceremony planned for 24 March 2020.


A full refund of your graduation fee will be processed onto your credit card automatically. You do not need to contact Bunjil Place. Refunds will be processed as soon as possible, however, given the volume, this may take some time. We ask for your understanding and patience during this time.

September Graduation

Chisholm currently has an additional Graduation Ceremony planned for Wednesday 9 September 2020 at the Frankston Arts Centre. Students registered to attend the March Graduation will be given first priority to attend the alternate ceremony. Should you wish to attend the September Graduation, please register your interest below.

Please note that the postponement of the graduation ceremony does not impact the completion of your course or the awarding of your formal course completion certification. You should have already received your testamur. If this is not the case, please contact us on 1300 244 746 or email and we will arrange the certification for you.
