2020 INTERNATIONAL GUIDE - Bond University
There are a lot of universities in the world, and it is your time to
                                                decide which one is right for you to achieve your ambitions, both as
                                                an individual and as a professional.

                                                Do you want to follow the crowd and be the same as everyone
                                                else?

                                                Or do you want to stand out. Be your own person. Ready to take
                                                the lead and make a real difference in the world?

                                                At Bond University, we believe that this is not just about having a
                                                degree: it’s about having an international outlook, global
                                                connections, the independence and people skills that come from
                                                moving outside your comfort zone and experiencing other cultures.

Australia is one of the world’s safest destinations for international students and Bond’s home town – the Gold Coast
– welcomes 32,000 overseas students each year from more than 130 countries.

Bond University is uniquely designed to support these students through every aspect of their overseas study
experience. With less than 5,000 students on campus and one of the lowest student:teacher ratios in Australia, we
offer a highly personalised learning environment of small classes and face-to-face teaching where our lecturers
know their students by name and our students all know each other.

We have a dedicated International Student Support Team offering guidance, counselling and connections with
academic tutors, English language programs, mentoring and buddy / friendship programs. We also have an active
student association that organises events, on-campus clubs, sporting teams and social nights.

I can guarantee that you won’t get lost in the crowd at Bond. Yes – you’ll have to work hard and study hard, but
you’ll also meet lots of new people, build a worldwide network of friends and business contacts, and learn so much
more about yourself and what you are capable of.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bond University and sharing ‘our’ Australia with you as part of a study
experience that will quite literally change your life.
