Bond University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Pre-degree
CRICOS: 00017B

The Diploma of Health Sciences is a direct pathway into undergraduate studies in health sciences, biomedical science, exercise and sports science, and exercise and sports performance. It offers a broad foundation in biological and chemical sciences where you will develop an understanding of the anatomical, molecular, and physiological processes of human health and function. One of the key benefits of opting to start your university studies with a Diploma is the extra support Bond University College offers. You’ll be well prepared for academic study in your first few weeks with an intensive skills program that covers essay writing, critical reading, study techniques, time management and more; there’s more face-to-face teaching time in small group classes; and you’ll have access to one-on-one tutoring, workshops and targeted study help through the Academic Skills Centre.
