Bond University offers a personalised educational experience of the highest international standards and is Australia’s highest rating university in the independent 2012 Good Universities Guide.

Bond pioneered an independent, private, not-for-profit model of university education in Australia, introducing a three semesters per year schedule that facilitates accelerated study programs allowing students to complete a six-semester bachelor degree in two years instead of three, or a master’s in 12 months.

With an internationally diverse, close-knit community of around 4,500 students, Bond offers the nation’s lowest student-to-staff ratio of 10:1, enabling small class sizes that encourage productive engagement and individual mentoring.

This personalised approach to education, combined with its uncompromising focus on industry relevance, sets it apart from every other Australian university.

Through the University’s extensive corporate partnerships, students have access to industry leaders and opportunities for internships, scholarships and graduate placements with a number of blue-chip organisations worldwide.

Students can also choose to broaden their horizons by participating in an international exchange program, with the opportunity to study relevant subjects at some of the world’s leading universities throughout Asia, Europe and North America. Bond also welcomes students from its partner institutions who wish to study in Australia for a semester through the Study Abroad program.

The University offers over 300 internationally recognised undergraduate and postgraduate (coursework and research) degrees across its Faculties of Law, Business, Humanities & Social Sciences and Health Sciences & Medicine; and Institute of Sustainable Development and Architecture. Also on campus are Bond College (offering university pathway programs) and the Bond University English Language Institute.

The Bond University campus is located on the Gold Coast in the south-east corner of the state of Queensland; within one hour’s drive of Brisbane and easy reach of Sydney through regular commercial flights departing from the Gold Coast Airport.

Considered Australia’s fastest growing city, the Gold Coast has a strong industrial base formed of marine, education, information communication and technology, food, tourism, creative, environment and sports industries. The city’s economic prosperity is predicted to strengthen further as it prepares to host the Commonwealth Games in 2018.

The Bond University campus itself boasts state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities and infrastructure. There is a wide array of on-campus accommodation and dining options with additional accommodation within walking distance of the campus.

More than 70 on-campus sporting, recreation and special interest clubs operate on campus, fostering the tight-knit community spirit and complementing the student experience.
