Experience Bond for yourself

The Bond experience

Discover what Bond has to offer

We understand that selecting where to begin or continue your tertiary studies can be a huge decision, one you’ll probably ponder for a while. So, it’s our mission to help you choose with confidence by giving you an exclusive taste of what our University has to offer. 

There are so many ways to gain insight into the Bond experience ahead of applying to university or commencing your studies. Immersive, exciting and personalised to you, these opportunities mean you’ll have a better understanding of your study area, our facilities, campus life and more before you click ‘apply’ – so, what are you waiting for?

Go behind the scenes

Come in – we're open!

Perhaps the best way to get to know any university is by attending their Open Day, whether that’s in person or virtually. Here at Bond, we offer an array of Open Day experiences that are totally tailored to you – because we know everyone’s time at university is different. Explore our upcoming Open Days and find out how you can connect with us and begin the process of learning what we’re all about.


Take study for a Test Drive

You wouldn’t buy a car without taking it for a spin around the block first. So, why should you approach your studies any differently? Put yourself in the shoes of a Bond student for a day and get to the heart of what makes our University a unique place to learn. With in-person and virtual Test Drives available, this is a prime chance to see how our expert academics, learning resources, campus culture and facilities measure up.


Explore our beautiful campus

From the Arch to the Ornamental Lawns, our campus is full of beautiful places to spend your time, whether you’re between classes, grabbing a meal with friends, or want to blend study with a little nature. 

See our favourite spots up close, or check them out virtually, with a campus tour guided by one of our friendly students or staff members.


Get started in high school

Enrich your high school experience and prepare for university at the same time with one of these unique opportunities, designed especially for students in Years 10, 11 and 12.
