Founded in 1989, Bond University celebrated 25 years of educational excellence in 2014. As Australia’s first private, not-for-profit university, Bond consistently pushes educational boundaries to create world-class, fully immersive academic programs, combined with individualised teaching and personal mentoring only available in Bond’s trademark small classes.
Taught by leading academics, industry consultants and business leaders, Bond University has a broad range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs. For the ninth consecutive year, Bond has retained its position as the nation’s highest rating university for educational experience in the 2015 Good Universities Guide. On the world stage, Bond was also awarded overall five stars by QS Stars in 2014 and was rated number one for student satisfaction in the 2012 International Student Barometer.
Australia - Vibrant location
Located on Queensland’s Gold Coast, Bond University offers state-of-the-art facilities within a stunning, culturally diverse setting. Based in Robina, at the heart of the Gold Coast, the campus is just 16km from Surfers Paradise and 80km from Brisbane, the third most populous city in Australia.
What makes Bond University different?
In addition to its reputation for academic excellence, sociable atmosphere and unique location, Bond University allows its students to graduate up to a year ahead of other Australian universities by studying three semesters each year rather than two.
Bond also prides itself on its small class sizes. With Australia's lowest student to teacher ratio, students thrive in smaller study groups and have unprecedented access to academics, technological resources and work experience opportunities.
Bond University places particular emphasis on core leadership skills, empowering students to become experts and pioneers within industry. Further leading the charge in educational innovation, Bond has introduced a new core undergraduate subject to help students broaden their employment skills beyond the classroom through a variety of work-integrated learning, global and community engagement activities.
