UNFOLLOW THE CROWD University is your time to decide who you are and what you want to be – 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 the most up-to-date, globally-focused degree and combining it with the underlying core skills that make employers sit up and take note. Skills like leadership, communication, team work and ethical values that we incorporate into every undergraduate degree through our only-at-Bond core skills subjects. And the added value of practical experience in your chosen field that you’ll get from internships, clinical placements and real-life projects through Beyond Bond. We’ll give you the opportunity to grow personally and professionally through overseas travel for study exchanges, international competitions, global conferences and volunteering programs. You’ll get to solve real-world problems, meet industry leaders, maybe start your own business and pitch it to investors. How can we deliver so much more than any other university? By offering a boutique learning environment based on one of the lowest student:teacher ratios in Australia, where you’ll be mentored in small personalised classes by world-class academics. That one-on-one support carries right through to the career planning, preparation and application process; ensuring you’ll stand out in the employment marketplace when you graduate and throughout your career. Ask any Bondy and they’ll tell you that coming to Bond University changed the course of their life. Professor Tim Brailsford Vice Chancellor and President 5 2020 Undergraduate Guide
