Beyond Bond is a practical, activity-based, professional development program that spans the duration of all undergraduate degrees. Administered by the Transformation CoLab as a mandatory degree requirement, the Program formally recognises the broader engagement and experiences students obtain in addition to their academic studies.
With the freedom to design their own Beyond Bond journey, students can choose how they complete the Program, emphasizing areas that most closely align with their career and professional objectives and interests. Students can engage in the Program through continued involvement in current activities (i.e., team sports), new experiences on campus (i.e., student associations), and further professional growth and development through internships and relevant work experience.
The Program is aligned to the University Graduate Attributes, Capable Individual, Effective Collaborator, and Global Citizen, and equips students with the capabilities required to be career-ready graduates.

About the program
As part of all undergraduate degrees, students must undertake Bond’s three University Core subjects:
- Critical Thinking and Communication
- Collaboration, Teams and Leadership
- Responsibility, Integrity and Civic Discourse
Participation in eligible Beyond Bond subjects and in-class activities with Core Classes may contribute to a students program in Beyond Bond.
Students are required to demonstrate reflective practice in completing submissions for select activities. Details of these submissions and resources detailing models of reflective practice are available on the Beyond Bond platform.
Beyond Bond empowers students to create and curate the evidence to demonstrate their graduate employability, which we define as the ability to create and sustain work and learning across the career lifespan and in multiple contexts.
Beyond Bond can be tailored to suit each student’s requirements and skill level, whether a school leaver or returning to study for a career change. Beyond Bond acknowledges that students commence undergraduate studies at different levels of career readiness and therefore recognise life before Bond through a Recognising Prior Experiences (RPE) process.
Students may be eligible to apply for RPE undertaken before commencing study at Bond. A minimum of six months is required and excludes activities completed while at high school.
For full details and eligibility requirements for RPE in Beyond Bond, please refer to the RPE Submission Form available within your Beyond Bond platform.
