Services & Support

Bond University's services and support extend beyond simply study support. The team provide students with personal attention from arrival on campus beginning with orientation week and social activities.

When the semester begins officially and your studies are underway, the support available includes study, personal, medical, international  and disability support.

If you are feeling a little overwhelmed by Bond’s accelerated schedule then our Study Support staff can provide practical assistance.

At Bond University, we offer on site medical and private counselling facilities which is available to currently enrolled students and staff members of Bond University. Due to the high volume of students requiring medical assistance, the Clinic is unable to assist alumni, family members of students and staff, or members of the community.

Services at the medical clinic include: general practice and skin care, sexual health advice, men and women's health, sports and travel medicine, health assessments whilst our Psychologists are able to provide confidential counselling to help you with anything from academic, study pressures through to personal problems.

Any students who have a disability, illness, injury or health condition that impacts on capacity to complete your studies, exams or assessment tasks, must let us know requirements early in the semester. Students will need to make an application for support and submit it with recent, comprehensive documentation at an appointment with a Disability Officer.

Bond University offer support to all disabled students, however it is important to note the broadness of this definition. For Bond University, a disability includes any impairment, injury, illness or health condition, which may affect a student's capacity to undertake a program of study. A disability may be permanent, short-term or episodic in nature. Read more

To help students adjust to these changes, the Student Learning Support Team offers personalised assistance in one-on-one and group sessions and seminars to improve skills in a number of areas. These include grammar, organisational and presenting skills.
