Accelerated degrees

Take the fast track

At Bond, you can get a head start on your career by completing your degree up to a year ahead of your peers at standard universities. We run on a three-semester-per-year timetable, which means you can finish a 24-subject bachelor’s degree in two years, a master’s degree in one to two years, a double degree in less than four years, or a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree in just three years.

What are the benefits?

  • Enter the workforce and start earning an income sooner
  • Get a head start on promotions
  • Accelerate your career progression  

How it works

Start in January, May or September

Bond runs three semesters per year. You will have the flexibility to start university at a number of points throughout the year, meaning you don’t need to wait to start chasing your dreams. Each semester runs for 13 weeks.

Complete a regular workload each semester

While Bond’s degrees are accelerated, your workload per semester is no different to the workload at other universities. A full-time study load is equivalent to around 40 credit points – typically four subjects per semester. We fast track our degrees by offering more semesters per year, not through a heavier study load.

Less downtime between semesters

Don’t worry, even those on the fast track get breaks! After you finish your exams, you’ll have a couple of weeks off to rest and recharge before the next semester begins.

Stand out sooner

Bond’s accelerated degrees allow you to graduate up to a year ahead of your peers at other universities, getting you into the workforce – earning, learning, and inciting change – sooner.

Bond’s three semesters begin in January, May and September every year.

A word from a Bondy

“At 20 years old, I’ve completed my undergraduate degree and am about to complete my master’s degree. I can keep momentum going towards my goals, and I haven’t wasted any time since finishing school.”
