Subject selection

Student for a Semester subject selection

As a Student for a Semester, you’ll complete one full university subject when you’re still in high school. This is a unique opportunity to learn more about Bond, get used to the structure of university classes and assessment, and to test drive a study area before you commit to a degree.

The subject you choose should reflect your interests and future career or study aspirations. Remember that Student for a Semester subjects can be credited towards your full degree at Bond University if they align with that particular study area and program.  

Please note that class times and subjects change each semester, and we cannot guarantee you will be placed in your requested timeslot. If a subject is offered during school hours, you will need to seek approval from your school to attend your classes. 

Applications for the January semester are now closed. 

Applications for the May 2024 semester open on Friday, 22 March. Subjects available in the May semester will be published below by 22 March, 2024.
