Bond University

To substitute our standard Open Day which was cancelled due to COVID, we are offering Year 12 students and their families the opportunity to experience their own Personal Open Day over the September school holidays.

This is an exclusive opportunity for year 12 students and their families to tour campus with a current Bondie, chat one-on-one with an academic in their program of interest, as well as anything else they’d like to do while on-campus!
