STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
            Studying overseas is an opportunity to experience a new
            culture, become independent and make friends from all
            over the world.

            But it can also be quite challenging to start a new life in
            a new country – particularly at larger universities where
            you can very easily get lost in the crowd.

            With fewer than 5,000 students, Bond University is
            uniquely set up to ensure our international students get
            the absolute best out of their overseas study experience.

            Our personalised teaching philosophy means our students
            learn in smaller class sizes with unprecedented access
            to their teachers. We also have a dedicated International
            Student Support Team offering guidance, counselling
            and advice on everything from homesickness to exam
            preparation.

            We ensure every student develops key employability skills
            and personal attributes that will ensure they stand out
            to future employers. Our Beyond Bond program provides
            undergraduate students with a range of professional
            activities tailored to their career goals. For our
            postgraduate students, we offer ‘Professional’ master’s
            programs in a range of study areas. These incorporate a
            20-week work integrated learning semester to ensure
            they stand out to future employers.

            We offer English language programs, tutoring and
            extra study support, mentoring and buddy / friendship
            programs, and 24 / 7 security. We also have an active
            student association that organises regular events,
            special interest clubs and societies, sporting teams and
            social nights where you will meet new friends and future
            professional colleagues who will be a part of your life
            long after you have finished your degree.

            You will 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 sharing ‘our’ Australia with you as
            part of a study experience that will quite literally change
            your life.

AUSTRALIA’S FIRST PRIVATE,
         NOT-FOR-PROFIT UNIVERSITY
         On 23 April, 1987, Bond University was given its University status by an Act of the State of
         Queensland’s Parliament.

         Modelled on the traditions of the world’s best educational institutions to provide an educational
         experience of the highest international standards, the University continues to be recognised both
         in Australia and internationally as a leading not-for-profit university. Our dedication to quality is
         supported with 100% of tuition fees being reinvested in ensuring our students have access to
         world-class facilities and learning resources, and learn under the guidance of expert academics.

         Bond University is recognised as a self-accrediting Australian university by the Tertiary Education
         Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). Bond’s programs for international students are registered
         with the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).

the wide range of people I have met from
countries all around the world and the exposure
to different languages and cultures.

Also, the small class size allows better access to
the lecturers to learn from their experience; and
the industry opportunities provide the chance to
gain experience during our studies.
