Yes you do – but it’s easy. Once you have chosen your four Semester Abroad subjects from the lists above, we will send you the course material for each one. You then need to present this to the Program Advisor or the Study Abroad office at your school so they can pre-approve your Bond classes before you leave home.

When you return, we will send the transcript for each of your classes to your School Registrar so you can get credit for the subjects you have passed at Bond.

Each application is assessed on a case-by-case basis but Bond generally requires a cumulative GPA of 2.3 and over (out of 4.0 – equivalent to 65%) for our Semester Abroad students. If English is not your main language, you may also be required to meet the English language standard for your chosen classes.
