Accept your offer and next steps
We look forward to welcoming you.
Once you have accepted your offer, follow our ‘Next Steps’ to prepare for life at Bond University and ensure a smooth start to your studies.
Step 1. Accept your offer
Congratulations on being offered a place at Bond University. Find out more about accepting your direct offer from Bond.
Step 2. Activate your IT account and student email account
Your IT account gives you access to the Student Portal, eStudent (Bond University’s online enrolment tool), your student email account and campus Wi-Fi.
Step 3. Set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Enabling multi-factor authentication is mandatory for all staff and student IT accounts.
Bond University is committed to providing best practice cyber security protections for staff and students. With over 60% of reported data breaches in Australia being caused by compromised credentials multi-factor authentication is a critical component in the protection of Bond's information assets.
To register, visit this website: https://aka.ms/ssprsetup
Once registered, the Microsoft Authenticator app on your mobile device can also be used for Self-Service Password Reset and will provide passwordless sign-in capability to Bond IT services in the near future.
If you haven't pre-registered using the link above, you will be prompted to register for multi-factor authentication when you log in for the first time.
For more information, including setup instructions, visit: https://bond.edu.au/mfa
Note: If you have a second mobile device, such as an iPad/tablet, you should add a 2nd sign-in method. This is useful as it provides a backup option in case your primary mobile device is unavailable. You can register a maximum of five devices.
Step 4. Access your Student Portal and eStudent
The Student Portal facilitates single sign on to all systems for current students such as iLearn, eStudent and Library. You should save the Student Portal website address as your Internet browser homepage or bookmark it as your favourite for single sign on and simple navigation around all Bond University systems and information.
View the instructions on how to access eStudent.
Step 5. Provide your USI to Bond
All new students will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Your USI is your individual education number for life.
You will need to apply for a USI if you wish to be eligible for Commonwealth Financial Support (FEE-HELP and SA-HELP).
Step 1: Get a USI. It is quick, easy, and free.
Already got your USI? If you have done any VET studies since 2015, you may already have a USI. Check if I have a USI.
Step 2: Notify Bond of your USI by completing simple online form.
Questions? Please refer to the Australian Government USI website for further details or contact the Student Business Centre.
Step 6. Book your accommodation (if required)
Learn more about the wide range of on- and off-campus accommodation options available for students
Step 7. Enrol in your first semester
Enrolment at Bond is a 3 step process which happens every semester and we've developed some 'how to' guides to help you complete this process for the first time. Begin by planning your subjects, then enrol via eStudent and finally register in classes.
As a new student you can enrol once you have accepted your offer and organised payment of your tuition fees. Students wishing to study full-time should choose the correct number of subjects as shown in the program structure and sequence. Changes to your enrolment can be made until Friday of Week 4 of the semester (Census Date)*.
*conditions and fees may apply
Step 8. Upload your photo to CaptureME
Whether you are studying on campus or remotely, you must upload your photo to the CaptureME portal. Your photo will be used for identification purposes on Bond's Student Learning Management System (iLearn), and for your student ID card.
If you are studying remotely, you can collect your ID card when you are able to arrive on campus.
If you are living on campus, attending on-campus classes and/or require access to on-campus facilities (e.g. library, Multimedia Learning Centre, Sports Centre), you will require a Student ID card. Once your photo has been approved through CaptureME, you can collect your Student ID card from Student Assist in the main library during Orientation Week.
Step 9. Take part in Orientation Week (O-Week)
During Orientation Week you will have the opportunity to take part in activities to introduce you to Bond, your academics, classmates and key support staff.
See the full schedule of events on our Orientation page, where you will also find lots of resources to help you settle in and start the semester strong.
