What is a Learning Access Plan
A Learning Access Plan (LAP) is based on your specific circumstances and health situation as well as your programme of study and faculty.
A LAP will have reasonable adjustments to help ensure learning can be accessed. The LAP will be communicated with the student and the faculty including the SASQ, Academics and placement coordinators where needed.
Bond University is committed to making every effort to provide personalised support to each student based on their individual requirements.
We will always endeavour to accommodate a student’s reasonable adjustments, but the university acknowledges it does have limited resources and facilities.
We require early notification in order to best assist you with adjustments to your studies.
