How to access support at Bond University

If you have a diagnosed disability, learning difficulties, an ongoing mental or physical health condition or are the primary carer for a person with disability, you are eligible to apply for a Learning Access Plan.

The Accessibility & Inclusion Advisor will help students to gain access to reasonable adjustments and can provide advice to future students regarding support services.

If you identify as having a disability or condition that may impact on your ability to complete your study, contact us about the resources and supports available.

Implementing a Learning Access Plan

Approved students will be issued with a Learning Access Plan, which clearly states the formalised and pre-approved adjustments which have been allowed for the student. Students are responsible for communicating the approved reasonable adjustments by sharing their Learning Access Plan with academic and teaching staff at the beginning of every semester, or as proactively as possible, to ensure relevant staff have a clear understanding of student needs in order to support and implement the approved adjustments.

If your plan has been approved but you do not have a Learning Access Plan, please contact the Accessibility & Inclusion Advisor to be issued with this document.

Some adjustments related to specialised equipment and software will be organised during the application process, whilst academic adjustments will require timely communication with Academic and campus staff, which the Accessibility & Inclusion Advisor will facilitate.
