Enrolment at Bond is a 3 step process which happens every semester. Begin by planning your subjects, then enrol via eStudent and finally register in classes.
If you are an English Language student you will be enrolled by Bond University College and you are not required to follow these steps.
If you are a new student commencing any other program, 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. Enrolment for new students opens in Week 11 of the semester before you commence your studies and remains open until Orientation Week. Please check the Academic Calendar for the relevant dates. Changes to your enrolment can be made until Friday of Week 4 of the semester (Census Date)*.

Step 1 - Plan your subjects
Set up your Bond IT Account
Activate your IT account online or at the Student Business Centre. This account gives you access to the Student Portal, eStudent, email, on-campus Wi-Fi connection and many other online services available to Bond Students.
Plan your subjects
Go to eStudent via the Student Portal, and find your Program Structure and Sequence under Enrolment Tools. This document outlines all the subjects required to complete your program, including compulsory and elective subjects, and usually includes a list of the subjects you should choose in your first semester.
To help you select elective subjects, browse all Bond subjects on Subject Search and from there, check the subject descriptions for more information.
Contact the Student Business Centre for assistance and advice.
Apply for Advanced Standing (credit)
If you have undertaken previous tertiary studies you may be eligible to apply for Advanced Standing/Credit. Check the Credit and Advanced Standing page for more information. You should submit the Advanced Standing Application with your official transcript and submit outlines.
Step 2 - Enrol via eStudent
Enrol in your subjects
New students can enrol in subjects from Monday Week 11 of the semester before commencing studies. Continuing students need to enrol in at least one subject during the pre-registration period from Monday Week 10 to Friday Week 12 to avoid a late enrolment financial penalty.
In eStudent, you can add electives and options to your expanded Study Planner and enrol in subjects via the Enrolments Tab. Subjects available for the next semester will be highlighted in blue. Select your subjects, tick the check box and the Enrol button then check your Enrolment Confirmation.
You can not normally overload your enrolment. If you wish to seek approval to undertake more than the full time load, please complete the online Overload Form to request to overload and outline your reasons.
If prompted, you will need to ensure your emergency contact details are updated before enrolling. Watch the video below for assistance on how to do so.
Contact the Student Business Centre if you need assistance enrolling.
Step 3 - Register for classes
You can register for classes in enrolled subjects from Wednesday Week 11. Some classes have quotas or multiple choices of times so it is advisable to register early.
From the Classes Tab in eStudent, choose the correct semester and check the registration status for your enrolled subjects. The class delivery mode for each class will be indicated on your timetable. The definition of class delivery modes is as follows:
- Multimodal Delivery: classes conducted using a mixture of on-campus and remote delivery formats
- On-campus Delivery: classes with students attending in class
- Remote Delivery: classes with students attending via technology
Available classes will be indicated on your timetable with a green plus sign in the top right-hand corner. Classes for which you have already registered will have a green tick in this corner. If the subject includes streams, which are two or more connected classes, you will need to choose one stream only – you cannot choose separate classes from different streams.
Check your Bond email account regularly for any information about timetable changes.
