Elite Athlete Friendly University
Bond University is a member of the Australian Sport Commission's Elite Athlete Friendly University Agreement (EAFUA), which provides guidelines for flexible study loads and requirements. The intensive three-semester year that Bond offers can create an added strain on students trying to balance sport and academia, for those who are training in their respective sporting disciplines at an elite level. Bond University will support elite athletes in the balanced pursuit of their academic and sporting goals at Bond University by introducing more flexible academic regulations for students-athletes of an elite level.
Elite athlete status will be granted to a student if they are a representative in a sport at a national or international level and if they are identified and recognised as an elite athlete by one the following organisations:
- Australian Institute of Sport (AIS)
- State Institutes or Academic of Sport
- AFL Players' Association
- Australian Cricketer's Association
- Rugby Union Players' Association
- Rugby League Professionals' Association
- Australian Professional Footballers' Association
- National squad and league members from Australian Sports Commission (ASC) supported sports
To attain the status of elite athlete, students must register with and be approved by the Office of Student Experience.
To register please complete the registration form on the Bond Bullsharks website
