Information for Students from Sweden
Bond has strong links with the Scandinavian countries, including Sweden. Many Swedish students have studied at Bond and we have a staff exchange arrangement with the Faculty of Law at Stockholm University, which several professors from both universities have participated in. Swedish students interested in studying at Bond are invited to contact Associate Professor Dan Svantesson.
Which Law program should I take*?
- One full-time semester as an undergraduate or postgraduate* Study Abroad student is equivalent to one semester of elective studies in Sweden.
- A one-semester exchange (see below)
- Bond University offers a one-semester Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice that consists of four subjects designed especially for civil law students, including the subject Introduction to Common Law.
- Bond also offers one-semester Diplomas in corporate and commercial law, international trade law, and dispute resolution.
- Swedes who stay at Bond University for two semesters can obtain the degree of Master of Laws (LLM), after completing eight postgraduate subjects or six subjects and a 20,000 word research paper.
Bond normally requires international students to undertake a language test to demonstrate their English skills. If the required score is not obtained in the test, or if the student wants to improve their English skills, the Bond University English Language Institute (BUELI) offers a preliminary language course on campus. Swedish students who apply through IEC can use their high school diploma as proof of their language skills; a grade of 4 or higher is required either in the core English subject or as an elective.
Student exchange arrangements have been negotiated with the law faculties at Stockholm University and Uppsala University.
