Frequently asked questions about accelerated degrees

Thanks for asking! If the below questions are on your mind, we’ve got the answers.  

Yes! Bond’s semesters begin in January, May and September, with a couple of weeks’ break between each semester. You can view key semester dates in our academic calendar.

No. A full-time study load is equivalent to 40 credit points, typically four subjects, per semester. Bond’s degrees are fast-tracked by completing more semesters per year compared to a typical two-semester academic calendar year, not through a heavier study load.

You could graduate up to a year ahead of the crowd. For example, a typical six-semester undergraduate degree would take three years to complete at a traditional university, but at Bond, completing three semesters per year means you will earn the same qualification in just one year.

It also means you could complete a six-semester undergraduate degree and a three-semester master’s degree in just three years total – gaining two qualifications in the time it would take students at another university to complete a single bachelor’s degree.
