The Bond difference
By undertaking three-semesters-per-year instead of the usual two (modelled on a North American / Canadian schedule), graduates accelerate their study and finish a six semester Bachelor's degree in two years. Bond also offers Professional Master's programs which combine five months of practical industry placement qualifying students to apply for the two year Post Study Work Visa after graduation.
Combine this advantage with Bond’s commitment to opening doors to blue chip employers and it becomes clear that students graduate with a clear competitive advantage over their public university peers.
Bond University has strong links with Canada, with a large number of Canadian students currently studying for law degrees at Bond and an active Canadian Law Students' Association. There is also rapidly expanding group of alumni in Canada. Several Canadian law professors and academics have spent time at Bond as visiting staff.
Financing your studies
Citizens of Canada can fund their Bond University degree in a variety of ways. Bond University makes it easy to study in Australia by offering international students part-fee scholarships and bursaries at both an undergraduate and postgraduate level.
In Canada, the federal and provincial governments jointly administer student financial assistance through the Canada Student Loans Program which includes Federal student loans (called Canada Student Loans) and Provincial student loans. Bond University is a recognised institution in the Canada Student Loans Program.
The Canada Student Loans Program provides interest free loans whilst students are enrolled at least half time.

Major Canadian banks offer limited student credit lines. This option normally only covers a portion of the cost associated with attending university abroad.
Some of Canada’s major banks have designed a line of credit tailored to students.
These lines of credit are negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
If you wish to claim educational expenses from your Canadian taxes, please email [email protected] or come in to the Student Business Centre to request a TL11A (Tuition, Education and Textbook Amounts Certificate – University Outside Canada) form.
Tax returns are normally required to be filed before April 30 each year for studies completed in the previous year.
