COVID-19 (coronavirus): Latest advice for the Bond community.

It is of strategic importance to Bond University that both Higher Degree Research (HDR) students and supervisors share the accumulated knowledge resources to ensure effective research training and support. Research training is promoted in the current Strategic Plan for this reason. Opportunities for training, support and information exchange are provided every semester at Bond.

HDR Support Series Sessions will be conducted via Multi-modal delivery (delivered on-campus to face-to-face learners and streamed live to off-campus learners). If you wish to attend online, please contact HDR unit to request a link for the session

  • Attendance is considered compulsory for all new and commencing HDR students.
