International Student Payment Options

International Wire Transfer

 

This is also known as a Telegraphic Transfer (TT) or International Money Transfer (IMT). This involves sending money directly from your bank account to the Bond University bank account in Australia. It takes about 3 business days for the money to arrive. Your bank will charge you a flat fee to send the money (usually about $35 to $50) so it doesn’t matter how much you send. But there is a downside. The exchange rate your bank gives you (when they exchange your local currency for Australian dollars) is terrible. This means it costs you hundreds of dollars more than other available options.

Slow Payment

Debit or Credit Card

 

This is quick and easy and payment arrives instantly. But there is a downside. The exchange rate is not the best rate so this can cancel out any upside of the points or miles you might earn.

NexPay Funds Transfer

 

NexPay is a payment service similar to Western Union, but much easier and completely free. Their exchange rate is 3% better than your banks exchange rate and therefore saves you a lot of money. For a $16,000 payment, the amount you pay in your local currency will be $450 less. There is no fee for sending payments with NexPay and Bond receives the money on the same day you make your payment.

 

NexPay also has bank accounts in your country so you simply transfer the funds to a local bank (vs sending an international payment). Canadians pay into an RBC account and USA students pay into a Rabobank account.

Pay Pal

 

Just like with your bank account, your PayPal funds will need to be converted to Australian dollars in order to pay Bond University. The exchange rate offered by PayPal is one of the worst in the world so we don’t recommend doing this. However, if you already have an Australian dollar balance at PayPal, then this is an excellent payment option.
