Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition

Bond recognizes the learning experience outside of Ontario, Canada, and through the Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition Process, the study before attending Bond is evaluated and recognized, based on the submitted official transcripts. Through the assessment, international students and students who transfer to Bond from other Canadian provinces can receive equivalency credits.


Bond’s assessment and evaluation system is based on the curriculum promulgated by the Ontario Ministry of Education, and policy documents such as “Ontario Schools” and “Growing Success”. It uses a variety of evaluation methods, such as homework, presentations, projects and written examinations, etc., assessing students’ performance in knowledge, thinking, communication, and application. This assessment and evaluation system focuses on students’ performances throughout the learning process, which is reflected in the fact that regular daily learning results account for 70% of the academic performances and final exams or other forms of final assessment account for 30%.
