VICE-CHANCELLOR’S MESSAGE Your future. It starts here. It starts now. In today’s ultra-competitive workplace, choosing the right university is absolutely vital to your future career. No matter which field you’re interested in, your potential employers will know each institution by its reputation and will give preference to stand-out applicants who offer something more. Bond University’s reputation in the workplace is built on a unique formula that combines academic qualifications with workplace experience, industry contacts and leadership skills training. As a result, our graduates are actively recruited by major national and multinational organisations and fast-tracked through early career promotions. With Bond’s help, there’s no limit to where your university degree can take you: David Baxby graduated with a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Commerce in 1994. He’s now the Managing Partner of Virgin’s Global Aviation Investments, reporting directly to Richard Branson. Kate Vidgen graduated with a double degree in Arts and Law in 1994. At just 35 years of age, she was made an Executive Director of the Investment Banking Group at Macquarie Bank, transacting multi-billion dollar deals. After completing a Bachelor of Exercise Science in just two years, Nick Pfeffer was recruited to London Bridge Hospital as a cardiac physiologist. And within months of completing her studies in journalism and international relations, Karin Isdahl was jetting around the world, filing stories from Norway, Singapore and Latin America for CNBC World Business. So where do you think you could be in five years’ time? If your ambition is to reach the heights of your chosen profession – to be the very best that you can be – then, like David, Kate, Nick, Karin and countless others, Bond University can be your passport to an extraordinary life.

Well, actually there are ten of them, which all add up to a far better university experience and outcome for you, regardless of which field of study you choose. We call it the ‘Bond Factor’, which basically translates to the ‘What’s in it for Me Factor’ - something you should always take into account, whichever university you are considering.

DEGREES BY DESIGN

UNDERGRADUATE STUDY Applicants who have not previously studied at university would normally enrol in a Bachelor’s degree. These undergraduate study programs typically comprise 24 subjects which can be completed in six semesters by undertaking a full-time load of four subjects per semester. Some undergraduate degrees are slightly longer, such as the Bachelor of Laws (32 subjects – eight semesters). UNIVERSITY CORE SUBJECTS At Bond University, we recognise that people have many careers throughout their lives where they require the soft skills to problem-solve and apply their education to a variety of occupations. As a result, in every undergraduate degree, students must complete the four University Core subjects: Communication Skills Your choice of one of the following: • Communication Skills • Public Speaking: Presentation Skills for Leaders Outcomes: To communicate effectively in writing, speaking and visual modes; to understand the nature of communication processes and the sources of difficulty in communication. Knowledge and Critical Thinking Your choice of one of the following: • Knowledge and Society • Business Applications of Information Technology • Reasoning Skills • Scientific Thinking and Research Skills Outcomes: To work effectively with contemporary information technology; to evaluate critically the current and future role of computing technology in the storage, retrieval and processing of information.

Responsibilty and Ethics Your choice of one of the following: • Cultural and Ethical Values • Contemporary Issues in Law and Society Outcomes: To appreciate the foundation of moral, ethical and social theories and their relevance to issues of public concern and debate; to use theoretical ideas in formulating arguments about how particular issues should be resolved. Leadership, Initiative and Teamwork Your choice of one of the following: • Strategic Management • Entrepreneurship Outcomes: To appreciate the natural, dynamic and strategic positioning of organisations within their environments; to appreciate the nature of effective work in groups. FOUNDATION SUBJECTS Most degrees include a specified number of foundation subjects which all students must complete, regardless of their chosen major or specialisation. ELECTIVE SUBJECTS Some degrees also allow students to choose elective subjects, either from the Faculty in question or from any other Faculty in the University. MAJORS / SPECIALISATIONS A major is a grouping of subjects (usually six) in a particular discipline that allows students to focus on a specialisation. Some degree programs also allow for a double major comprising 12 subjects in a given discipline.


DEGREE OPTIONS

DEGREE OPTIONS

Bond University schedules three full semesters per year, allowing students to complete their studies much earlier than at other universities. For instance, a standard 24-subject Bachelor’s degree that takes three years with the normal two-semesters-per-year timetable, can be completed in only two years at Bond. This accelerated study mode, combined with the flexibility of our cross-Faculty subject offerings, gives students the opportunity to tailor their degree studies to suit specific career goals or enhance their employability by adding extra qualifications.

DOUBLE DEGREES Bond University offers a range of double degrees and combined degrees. Applicants may apply for the following combined degrees: • Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of Biomedical Science / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of Business / Bachelor of Commerce • Bachelor of Business / Bachelor of Information Technology • Bachelor of Business / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of Business / Bachelor of Social Science • Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of Communication (Business) / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of Communication / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of International Relations (Business) / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of International Relations / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of Journalism / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of Property and Sustainable Development / Bachelor of Laws • Bachelor of Social Sciences (Psychology) / Bachelor of Laws Double degrees in other combinations are available conditional upon subject availability*. *Not available for all programs.

HONOURS DEGREES An Honours degree is usually two or three semesters of coursework, seminars and supervised research taken after a Bachelor’s degree. It advances students’ knowledge and experience and helps prepare them for future research work and higher degree programs. A high level of achievement in an undergraduate course is a pre-requisite of entry into an Honours degree program. Honours degrees are available in selected programs within the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Law.*

STUDY SCHEDULE As a requirement of your visa, international students undertake four subjects per semester (equivalent to 40 credit points).

Hannah Silvasich Winner: Dr Paula Whitman Future Leader Award, UDIA’s 10th Annual Women in Development Awards. I chose to study Sustainable Development because I wanted to be part of this exciting and relatively new concept. This cutting edge degree taught me vital skills such as how to consider the environment when designing and building sustainable properties. I believe this concept will be more widely practised in the near future by developers and embraced by purchasers. This property degree was everything I could have imagined and more. It was stimulating, insightful, enjoyable and incredibly relevant - I wouldn’t want to study anywhere else.

DISABILITY SUPPORT

Bond students benefit from the range of support services available on campus, relating to every aspect of study, medical and personal well-being.

Here at Bond University, students who have a disability are welcomed and every effort is made to accommodate individual students’ needs. If you have a disability or long-term medical condition that will affect your ability to complete your studies, exams or assessment tasks, it is important you let us know your special requirements early in the semester. If you would like to be considered for support, you will need to complete an application form and submit it with recent and comprehensive specialist documentation at an appointment with a Disability Officer before Week 4.

International Student Support Bond values the cultural differences and diversity brought to the campus by its international students and makes every attempt to ensure they feel welcome. Individual academic counselling is also available to all students from a non-English speaking background. International students also have access to an International Student Support Officer, who can provide visa advice and support whilst you settle in.

Security The Bond University campus is patrolled 24 hours a day, seven days a week by our on-staff security officers and monitored by security cameras. Security officers can be contacted at any hour by phone to assist in an emergency or even just to walk you to your car after dark.

Medical Services An on-campus Medical Clinic staffed by a doctor and nurse is available for confidential consultations from Monday to Friday. A Counsellor is on hand to facilitate any special requirements for students.

Personal Support Qualified Personal Counsellors are available on campus to listen to any problems you may be experiencing in relation to everything from lack of motivation and depression through to harassment. This service is completely confidential.

INVESTING IN YOUR FUTURE

Health cover OSHC charge is an Australian Government requirement for all international students and their dependents, and needs to be paid prior to visa issue. OSHC Worldcare is the preferred provider for international students at Bond University. They offer excellent incentives if you purchase cover for the length of your student visa, such as discounts and protection against future rate rises. Please note that the Australian Government requires students to be covered for the length of the visa. OSHC assists towards the costs of fees for doctors, surgery, shared hospital ward accommodation, emergency ambulance transport and some other medical services. You can opt to pay a higher level of private medical health insurance. This will give you extra cover for the cost of services such as optical treatment, physiotherapy and private hospital treatment with a doctor of your choice. In some circumstances, Norwegian and Swedish students are exempt from OSHC. Please check with your local representatives.

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)* Single Family Up to 3 months AUD$98 AUD$196 Up to 6 months AUD$195 AUD$390 Up to 9 months AUD$293 AUD$586 Up to 12 months AUD$390 AUD$780 * 2010 charges current at time of printing (July 2010).

Part-time work Australian Government regulations permit international students to work up to 20 hours a week, and full-time during semester breaks. Please note, you cannot commence work until you commence your degree program in Australia. As work can’t be guaranteed, it should be viewed as a supplementary source of funds only and not relied on to cover tuition or living costs

APPLICATION & ENTRY PROCEDURES

Relevant work experience will be considered in the case of matureage students. The table on page 89 lists a range of international qualifications recognised by the University. If your country is not listed here, or if you are uncertain whether your qualifications satisfy university standards, please contact your local Bond University representative or the Office of Admissions.

English language requirements All Bond University courses are conducted in English. As such, international students from a non-English speaking background must meet certain language requirements. These requirements differ from course to course - see the table on page 91 for degreespecific details.
