In addition to the excellent standard of teaching and our world class facilities, our international students enjoy an active social life both on and off the campus.
The Faculty of Law welcomes overseas students from all parts of the world. Our past and present law students are drawn from over 100 nations. We have had large numbers from Canada, Malaysia and China in particular, but also Fiji, Hong Kong, Japan, India, South Korea, New Zealand, PNG, Singapore, the Solomon Islands, Taiwan, the United States, Vietnam and Zimbabwe. We have also attracted many Masters students from France, Germany, Norway and Sweden.
Australia’s legal system is based on the Common Law model of England. As such, several other jurisdictions with Common Law systems, including East Malaysia, Botswana, Fiji, Hong Kong and New Zealand, allow Australian law degrees generally to satisfy the academic requirements for professional admission. Some other jurisdictions with Common Law systems recognise Australian law degrees as satisfying part of the academic requirements for professional admission but expect additional study in the law of the home jurisdiction. Canada and some American states (including California and New York) recognise all Australian law degrees in this way. In India, Brunei and West Malaysia, Bond University’s Bachelor of Laws is one of a limited number of Australian degrees which are specifically recognised.

International students are required to meet the specified English Language Requirements for law studies. For those needing to improve their English written and oral skills, the on-campus Bond University English Language Institute (BUELI) offers a range of programs which are fully accredited by the National ELICOS Accreditation Scheme (NEAS).
