Supporting Documentation

To support your application, students are required to submit a Health Practitioner Report which needs to be completed by a relevant health practitioner or disability specialist.  This report must provide recommendations for reasonable adjustments that support the functional impact of the condition on the student’s ability to participate in their studies on the same footing as other students. 

For students with learning difficulties, memory and cognitive deficits or visual print difficulties who have not been formally diagnosed, a diagnosis needs to be organised prior to agreeing a Learning Access Plan.

To access the Health Practitioner Report, click here.

Upload supporting medical documentation & Health Practitioner Report

(eg. Health Practitioner Report, Neuropsychological assessment, Education assessment, letter from Psychiatrist, Psychologist, GP letter, other relevant documentation)

To be acceptable, documents must meet the following criteria:

  • No more than 2 weeks old for temporary conditions.
  • No more than 6 months old for fluctuating conditions.
  • Yearly for ADD/ADHD (unless considered permanent by the assessing specialist).
  • No more than 3 years old for learning disability - a psychometric report with a tertiary/adult emphasis.

The University requires certain documentation of a student’s disability and/or health-related circumstances in order to prepare a Learning Access Plan for Academic Adjustment. The Learning Access Plan will describe academic accommodations approved for the student. Please visit our website for details of documentation and information required during the assessment process: www.bond.edu.au/disability-support.

Personal information will only be disclosed to third parties with the written consent of the student, unless otherwise required by law and, where applicable, external authorities involved in the accreditation or registration of professional programs where such information is required as a condition of that relationship.

Please indicate the level of disclosure for your disability and/or health-related documentation:

  • FULL disclosure (permission to release the nature of my condition and its effects on my studies to relevant staff at Bond University, the condition is stated on the Learning Access Plan which is distributed to all relevant staff).
  • Confidential (the condition and its effects will remain known only to the disability staff).
