THE MOST VALUABLE INVESTMENT
YOU WILL EVER MAKE                              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 is about having
                                                the most forward-thinking, 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 will get from
                                                internships, clinical placements and real-life projects through Beyond Bond.

                                                We will give you the opportunity to grow personally and professionally through overseas
                                                travel with student exchanges, study tours, international competitions, global conferences
                                                and volunteering programs. You will get to work on projects that you are passionate about,
                                                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 personalised learning environment based on one of the lowest
student to teacher ratios in Australia, where you will be mentored in small classes by world-class academics.

That one-on-one support carries right through to the career planning, preparation, and application process; ensuring you will stand out in
the employment marketplace when you graduate and throughout your career. Ask any Bondy and they will tell you that coming to Bond
University changed the course of their life.

IN A CLASS OF YOUR OWN
Most university degrees look a little like this:
You’re sitting in a crowded lecture theatre, among a sea of strangers. There’s you, your
lecturer…and over 100 fellow students.
At Bond your university experience is personal, from day one. Your teachers don’t just
know you by name, they know your dreams and ambitions. They probably know your
coffee order too.
It’s one of the reasons we’ve been ranked Australia’s leading university for student
experience for the past 14 years, according to the Good Universities Guide.

BREWING BIG IDEAS TO
MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE
I was seven when I visited Africa for the first time. My experiences
there, and in particular Kenya, have taught me the value of education;
when someone manages to get a good education, they’re not only
supporting themselves, but can make a big impact on society.

I got involved in the Transformer program at Bond during my Business and Commerce degrees,
attending workshops and information sessions that sparked my interest in entrepreneurship. Through
Transformer’s industry connections, I met a social entrepreneur who was helping to set up solar
electricity in Africa and it got me thinking: how could I make an impact on global issues?

I was waiting for a coffee at Bond when the idea for Nice Coffee Co. was born. In Kiberia, Kenya, most
people live on a single dollar a day – so imagine what you could do with the price of a coffee?

The Transformer program, Bond Business Accelerator, an international internship and a global
entrepreneurship competition hosted on campus have all helped me to turn Nice Coffee Co. from idea to
reality. The leadership, ethical and critical thinking skills I’m learning in my degree ensure I’m a well
rounded, future focused graduate. My teachers have gone above and beyond to help along the way; my
accounting and negotiation lecturers regularly give me business advice and I have access to professional
legal advice whenever I need it.

Through Nice Coffee Co., we use ethically sourced Kenyan coffee to supply beans-and-machine packages
to offices and companies that want their dollars to make a difference. All profits go to St John’s Primary
School in Kiberia teaching 450 students. Around 100 schools have been closed in Kenya, so it’s so
important to keep this school open to ensure these kids get the education they deserve and are a step
closer to breaking the cycle of poverty.
