Study abroad and inbound exchange

If you're an international student looking to study overseas for a semester or two - you've come to the right place! Before you commence your application, first determine whether you will be applying as an exchange or study abroad student and the semester in which you would like to attend Bond University.

Are you an inbound exchange or study abroad student?

If your institution or university is a partner of Bond University, then you're an exchange student. On the other hand, if there's no agreement between your institution and Bond then you're a study abroad student.
