Profile

Bond University is Australia’s first private, non for profit university, offering a personalized academic environment that enables graduates to exceed the outer limits of their potential in their career and in life. Created in the scholarly traditions of pre-eminent private universities of world standing, Bond University challenges students to be leaders and thinkers; taking them beyond the accepted definition of a university education to develop initiative, enterprise, ambition, and a lifelong commitment to making a meaningful contribution to their field. All students have access to unparalleled academic and technological resources on Bond’s world class Gold Coast campus (on Australia’s east coast). Bond’s personalized approach to education combined with its uncompromising focus on industry relevance sets Bond University apart from every other Australian university. Students thrive in smaller study groups where eminent professors and industry experienced lecturers know them by name. Students have open access to industry leaders, corporate high flyers, and notable achievers who actively participate in Bond’s guest speaker programs. Students are given the opportunity to study overseas through established partnerships with some of the world’s leading universities and research facilities. And by undertaking three semesters per year instead of the usual two, students complete their degree studies 12 months or more before their colleagues from other universities, thereby gaining a vital advantage in the ultra competitive careers market. This advantage is further driven by graduates themselves. Many within Bond’s close knit global network of alumni now hold upper echelon management and partnership positions in blue chip organizations around the world and maintain that their Bond experience was a key factor in fast tracking their careers. Ultimately, the results speak for themselves. The 2009 Good Universities Guide rates Bond as Australia's best Graduate Outcomes and Educational Experience. Third party research also shows that employers know Bond graduates are better prepared for the workplace than any other university graduates. At Bond, we believe that potential becomes limitless when you combine ambition with opportunity. In fact, we not only share your ambition, we bring it to life.
