2023 Year 12 entry

Bond University’s Year 12 Early Guaranteed Offer Scheme recognises the challenges students have faced over the past few years of senior schooling.  Eligible students can receive an offer to study at Bond in 2023 before final ATAR or IB Diploma results are released, providing certainty about your future study options.   

2022 admissions data for school leavers

In Semester 1, 2022, there were fewer than five ATAR enrolments made in this program hence comparative information is not provided.

Finished secondary education

If you completed secondary education more than two years ago, you can still refer to these results in your application to study at Bond. We will also take into account whether you have additional qualifications, including formal qualifications such as Senior External Examination results, higher education study, VET study and diplomas, or work and life experience.

If you completed your secondary schooling overseas or hold other educational qualifications overseas, your application will be assessed using the Australian Government Department of Education's Country Education Profiles and QTAC assessment schedules on overseas assessment.
