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. Professor Tim Brailsford Vice Chancellor and President
