Semester Dates

Bond has 3 intakes per year - September, January and May. To see the exact dates, refer to About Bond | Semester Dates.

 

Student & Work Visa

As when traveling to many countries, you need to seek permission from that country to stay for extended periods of time. Accordingly, you will require a student visa to study at Bond. A Student Visa may only be applied for once you are accepted to study at Bond University and you have received your Confirmation of Enrolment. Don't sweat it though. We guide you through this process and make it pain free. It can take up to 6 weeks (but is often much shorter) to get your Visa so getting your application to us ASAP means we can get everything done in time.

Your student visa also permits you to work in Australia (once you have commenced your program at Bond) up to 20 hours per week. Dependents of students who have commenced a Masters or PhD level program are able to work unlimited hours.

The visa will allow you to enter Australia 3 months before your program begins and will expire 2 months after your program is complete.

 

JOBS & INTERNSHIPS while studying

There are resources on campus (Career Development Centre) and off campus (including www.Seek.com.au and  www.GoldCoast.com.au ) for finding jobs or unpaid jobs (internships) whilst studying on the Gold Coast. There are many jobs in hospitality (restaurant, cafe, bar etc) on the Gold Coast so if you have experience in these, you will likely find part time work.

 

Using your Bond degree IN NORTH AMERICA

For the USA, there is an arrangement between the Australian Government and the US Government for reciprocal degree recognition. This means a USA degree can be used in Australia, and an Australian university degree can be used in the USA. This arrangement was further reinforced by its inclusion in the 2004 Free Trade Agreement between Australia and the USA. For specialist industries, each state in the USA has it's own requirements and it is worth investigating with the governing body of your specialist profession to learn the additional requirements for foreign degrees.

Accounting

The Global Accounting Alliance (GAA) was formed by accounting organizations throughout the world to allow mutual recognition of its members so they can be certified accountants in any other member country. These countries include Australia, USA, Canada, Ireland, Hong Kong, England and Wales, Scotland, Germany, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa.

Those who graduate with an accounting degree from Australia and become members of the ICAA (Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia) can then receive automatic membership with the GAA counterparts in any of the above listed countries.

Law - USA
Graduates with an Australian law qualification who have been admitted to practice in Australia may be eligible to sit for the bar examinations and obtain admission in some American states. Admission in these states is controlled by local state bar associations and the state supreme courts. Information about admission requirements for foreign law degrees is available through the American Bar Association website at
www.abanet.org.

Most foreign educated lawyers seek admission in California or New York and then do an inter-state transfer (if they wish to practice in another state). The rules in these jurisdictions should be examined carefully to determine whether you satisfy the requirements. You should review these regularly as they are subject to change. The Bond Law School has no control over admission rules.

 

Law - Canada

To practice law in Canada, you will need to complete a Canadian bar admissions course. To be eligible for this course in any of the common law provinces (excluding Quebec), you will need a Certificate of Qualification from the National Accreditation Committee (the ‘NCA’) of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. The certificate will state that you have education and training equivalent to that of a Canadian law graduate. Application is made to the NCA at the end of your degree at Bond. The NCA will review your record and typically prescribes a number of examinations in Canadian law.

The NCA is now requiring just four Canadian law exams from most Australian graduates: Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Administrative Law and Foundations of Canadian Law. Bond offers all four of these classes. Therefore, Canadians can complete all the Canadian law requirements at Bond University and, provided certain grades are achieved (eg. 55% for Foundations of Canadian Law), may not have to sit for any NCA exams.
