International Student Prospectus - 2018 Information for International Students - Bond University
Right now, no matter what you’re doing – working on a
big job, a small job or trying to find a job – this is the
most you’ve ever thought, worked or questioned what
life is all about, and you’re not the only one.

There’s seven billion different ‘nows’ happening in the
world. With so much going on, why wouldn’t you learn
from it?

At Bond University we prize current knowledge from
innovators. We value experience in the world right
now. We make each moment count with small class
sizes, personal attention and accelerated degrees.
Because there’s no moment like this moment.

Bond University.

Vice-Chancellor’s Message

The world is changing. How we learn and respond to these
changes is critical for our future successes. The future belongs to those
making it now, so finding the right university is the most important
decision you will make at this stage of your life. It all starts with the right
learning environment. Every Bond student receives a personalised,
transformative learning experience thanks to practical learning
opportunities that respond to our world moment by moment, smaller
class sizes and the chance to collaborate with like-minded students.

As a Bond student, you will have a lifelong advantage, equipped with the
skills to stand up to intense competition, become globally mobile and
connected with the right people for career success.

When I venture around campus I feel a special kind of spirit at Bond.
Guided by world-class lecturers, all of our students are eager, ambitious
and ready to challenge the norm with innovation always top of mind. The
accelerated degrees, which can be completed in just two years inspire a
culture of discipline and focus. And the result? Graduates that are
confident, capable and awake to opportunity.

We know you have the potential to make a real difference – because we
have seen so many of our students over the years do just that. Living and
working in every corner of the globe, they are now heading up major
corporations, helping disadvantaged communities in developing countries,
researching medical breakthroughs, engineering cutting-edge
technologies. As a graduate of Bond University, you will be joining their
elite ranks.

I very much look forward to sharing the journey as you bring
your ambition to life.

Kind regards,

Professor Tim Brailsford
Vice-Chancellor and President

Because we do things differently.


           At Bond, you won’t lose time with long breaks between semesters. We run three full
           semesters a year, with intakes in January, May and September. This means that you can
           complete a standard bachelor’s degree in just two years or a Master of Business
           Administration (MBA) in one year. It also means you will be out in the workforce up to a
           year ahead of the rest, earning sooner.


           Bond’s personalised teaching philosophy means you will learn in smaller class sizes with
           unprecedented one-on-one access to your professors. Even outside of class time, our
           academics have an open door policy that means they will not only know you by name,
           they’ll actively mentor your progress.


           At Bond, we believe education goes beyond the classroom. Our unique Beyond Bond
           program will expand your horizons with internships, global volunteering programs,
           international competitions, industry conferences, study tours, community service and much,
           much more.

           This is why our graduates are the first choice for many employers. They are immediately
           distinguishable in the workplace for their confidence, maturity, global awareness,
           communication skills and leadership qualities. Bond sets you up to succeed.
