Student for a Semester
Are you an ambitious Year 11 or 12 high school student living on the Gold Coast, in Brisbane or Northern NSW?
If so, the Bond University Student for a Semester Program might be for you...it's a great chance to kick-start your university career because you'll study a Bond subject, meet university students and professors, and get involved in university life. You might even discover a new career that interests you.
You might find this program challenging at times, because of the extra study and classes you must attend each week, but if your parents and teachers agree that you're capable, then we highly recommend you apply for Student for a Semester.

Fees and Expenses
Tuition for the first Student for a Semester subject in 2013 is $238.00 and includes access to all of Bond's campus facilities. Students may also need to purchase a textbook and other course materials.
Subject Requirements and Assessment
Students will need to attend one lecture and one tutorial each week (this may vary depending on the subject). There are no mid-semester breaks or holidays during the semester and students must submit all set assessment tasks to successfully pass their subject.
Students who have passed a Student for a Semester subject at Bond can apply to do a second subject but will need to submit a new application form. The maximum number of subjects that can be completed as part of the Student for a Semester Program is two.
Please note: Students must achieve a grade of at least 50% (pass) in their first subject (or 65% for a HSS subject) to be approved for a second subject, at the reduced fee. Please review our Academic Handbook (page 46) for further policies relating to this program.
