The academic development program gives you access to personalised learning and a range of other student support services.

Bond University Preparation Program

Bond University’s University Preparation Program (UPP) is an 8 subject course focusing on the development of the core academic skills required for university study. 

Bond’s University Preparation Program runs in line with the University’s three-semesters-per-year schedule.  Successful completion of the two semester program guarantees a pathway into a range of Bond University diplomas and bachelor degrees.

NB: The UPP is not a pathway into the Medical Program.

Studying full-time at Bond, you can complete your University Preparation Program and degree in two years and eight months – up to four months earlier than students at other universities will take to complete a full undergraduate degree.

Who is it suitable for?

The University Preparation Program replaces the need for an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) or equivalent to meet the entry requirements for Bond University undergraduate degrees.  Minimum entry requirement - completion of Australian year 11.
