About this course

Emerging as a key growth sector of the 21st century, actuarial science applies elements of economics, finance, statistics and advanced mathematics to interpret, manage and evaluate risk. Never before have organisations had such extraordinary access to personal information, health statistics, buying habits, population movement, employment trends and much, much more. In these numbers lie the answers to the big questions that really matter. Accredited by the Actuaries Institute, the Bachelor of Actuarial Science is an innovative and immersive program that combines the elements of economics, finance, statistics and advanced mathematics to develop techniques for the management of risk. Developed and taught by Professor Terence O'Neill, one of Australia's leading academic authorities in the field, the program delivers smaller classes for personalised attention. Students experience unparalleled access to Bond Business School's two financial trading rooms and 40 Bloomberg terminals - the most of any university in Australia. The Bachelor of Laws prepares students for a career as a legal professional, both within Australia and overseas. It provides students with a thorough grounding in essential areas of substantive law and access to a wide choice of law elective subjects, including the option of completing a specialisation. An integrated skills and professionalism program is embedded in the degree and focuses on core legal skills essential to the practice of law. The Bachelor of Laws provides an engaging learning experience that challenges students academically and prepares them practically for a legal career.
