Your road to Bond University

Bond University’s Year 12 Early Guaranteed Offer Scheme recognises the challenges students have faced over the past few years of senior schooling.  Eligible students can receive an offer to study at Bond in 2023 before final ATAR or IB Diploma results are released, providing certainty about your future study options.   

Year 12 early offers for 2023: How it works

  2. Bond University will assess your application and high school grades against the minimum entry requirements for Bond's undergraduate* and diploma programs.

  3. If you meet the entry requirements, you receive an early offer for 2023 January, May or September intake - that guarantees entry into you Bond program, conditional on the completion of Year 12 and meeting any subject prerequisite requirements for your program.

  4. When you successfully complete Year 12 and pass any prerequisite subjects, your offer becomes unconditional and you are officially a Bondy!

Your final ATAR can be used to gain admission into a program of a higher entry requirement if the minimum ATAR is met, but a lower final ATAR will not result in the withdrawal of your offer. Bond University will, however, discuss support options with you, including a plan for increased academic support during your study at the university.
