Coronavirus (COVID-19): advice and support for the Bond community. Read more

Your road to Bond University

In these uncertain times, Year 12 students have shown incredible resilience in adapting to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and the disruption it has caused their studies and more broadly – our world.  

To ensure students are not disadvantaged by the hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Bond University will support students by assessing applications based on their first semester Year 12 results.  

Year 12 entry for 2021: How it works  

  1. Complete Bond’s direct online application, submitting results from your Semester 1 Year 12 report, as well as your Year 11 semester one and two results.

  2. Bond University will assess your application and high school grades against the minimum entry requirements for Bond's undergraduate* and diploma programs.

  3. If you meet the entry requirements, you receive an offer that guarantees entry to Bond conditional on the completion of Year 12 and meeting any subject prerequisite requirements for your program.

  4. When you successfully complete Year 12 and pass any prerequisite subjects, your offer becomes unconditional and you are officially a Bondy!

*Note: Bond's Medical Program is excluded from these revised entry requirements.

Your offer guarantees entry to your program conditional only on the successful completion of Year 12 (as evidenced by your final school report card and/or the State’s Certificate of Education and/or ATAR results) and passing any prerequisite subjects required. The revised entry requirements are designed to support students who have been disrupted by COVID-19.  

Your final ATAR can be used to gain admission into a program of a higher entry requirement if the minimum ATAR is met, but a lower final ATAR will not result in the withdrawal of your offer.  

Where pre-requisites are required for admission to the program, the offer will also be conditional on passing the required pre-requisite/s ATAR eligible Units 3 and 4, as evidenced by the final subject scores on the state’s Certificate of Education.

Offers will be made based on Year 12 semester one school results attained in late-2019/early-2020. Depending on the state and territory this may be the best five or best four eligible ATAR subjects.

Your first step is to get in touch with your Domestic Regional Manager to discuss your options. In many cases, we can offer an alternative pathway into your program of preference. If you complete a VET qualification in school and successfully complete Year 12 (with or without an ATAR), Bond will consider your VET qualification for admission. 

No, Bond University still relies on minimum ATARs as the benchmark for entry to its programs.  Given the current disruption Bond will recognise Year 12 results as equivalent to those minimum entry requirements. This is a one-off change that recognises there is a need to provide clarity to students during the disruption of COVID-19 and provide an alternative and fair entry option, but it does not diminish our academic integrity and student success.We are confident our unique personalised teaching environment will support students to succeed in their university program.
