Studying at Bond

Let's start with a quick explainer: How does Australia's education system work?

Australia's education system ranks in the Top 10 worldwide.

While the education system varies slightly from state to state, Australian children generally complete 13 years of schooling – from Prep (sometimes called Kindy or Kindergarten) to Year 6 in Primary School and Year 7 to 12 in Secondary/High School.

At the end of Year 12, they will sit their final exams. Students hoping to go to university will generally receive an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) between 0 and 99.95.

The tertiary education system is made up of vocational training, delivered by TAFE and specialist private colleges, and undergraduate and postgraduate (graduate) degrees, delivered by public and private universities.
