Fees and Finance Options
Bond University is a proudly not-for-profit institution, which means that every cent we receive in tuition fees is reinvested back into the University, and goes towards ensuring you receive an exceptional student experience. This approach is the reason we’re able to offer our students access to world-class facilities, state-of-the-art learning resources, and smaller class sizes with an average 11:1 student to teacher ratio.
Our three-semester-per-year schedule also means you can finish your degree sooner, and be out in the workplace up to a year ahead of your peers. Not only will you begin earning faster, but this timesaving also represents a substantial reduction in accommodation and living costs. Combined, the value of a Bond University degree is undeniable.
So, how can you pay for your Bond degree? Just like our individualised approach to learning, we understand that everyone’s journey to university is different, and that includes how you plan to finance your degree. We offer a number of finance options for both domestic and international applicants – keep reading to have all your questions about financing your degree answered.
How much will my degree cost?
Our tuition fees vary, and are based on your chosen program and whether you are a domestic or international student. You can learn more about the current and projected costs for your program of choice on its respective program page.
We review our program fees on an annual basis, however they may also be subject to change without notice. The fees that are published at the time of your commencement are the fees you will be charged.
What financial support options are available?
For Australian students, and eligible New Zealand students, the most popular financial support option is FEE-HELP, an interest-free loan provided by the Australian government and designed to defer your tuition fees until you begin working full-time.
Of course, there are a number of other options available to both domestic and international students that can be used to cover certain costs associated with studying.
When am I required to pay my fees?
Fees must be paid on a semesterly basis at the start of each semester. If you’re an eligible Australian student planning on accessing an interest-free FEE-HELP loan, you must have submitted the relevant documentation by that semester’s census date.
The process for paying your tuition fees differs depending on whether you are an international or a domestic student.
Other associated costs
