Domestic student fee information

Financing your degree

An investment in your education is an investment in your future. There are many finance options available for domestic students, including the fee-free, interest-free FEE-HELP loan scheme, as well as other government assistance, loyalty discounts and more. 

About our fee structure 

Fees for programs at Bond don’t need to be paid upfront, or in full, before you begin your degree.  You will pay your fees on a semester-by-semester basis, only paying for the individual subjects you have enrolled in that semester. And if you’re utilising an Australian government loan scheme, like FEE-HELP, you may not need to pay any fees upfront.

FEE-HELP  

FEE-HELP is an interest free loan that helps eligible fee paying students pay their tuition fees, similar to HECS-HELP. The accumulated debt is indexed according to the Consumer Price Index (CPI). FEE-HELP applies to undergraduate study and postgraduate coursework and research study.
