Bond University offers a world-class personalised educational experience and is dedicated to developing the next generation of corporate and community leaders.

Bond is Australia’s first independent, not-for-profit university and for the eleventh year in a row was rated the country’s highest rating university for Educational Experience, by the 2017 Good Universities Guide. 

Bond offers accelerated degrees through its three-semester-per-year schedule which allows students to complete a six-semester bachelor degree in two years, or a master’s in 12 months.

With just over 4,000 students on campus, Bond also has a five-star rating for student to staff ratio, enabling small class sizes that encourage productive engagement and individual mentoring. 

Collaborative, discussion-based teaching encourages students from some 80 countries worldwide to share their experiences and learn from each other. Bond’s students have access to industry and opportunities for internships, scholarships, ground-breaking research, and graduate placements with a number of blue-chip organisations worldwide.

Students can choose to participate in an international exchange program, with the opportunity to study relevant subjects at some of the world’s leading universities throughout Asia, Europe and North America. Bond also welcomes students from its partner institutions who wish to study in Australia for a semester through the Study Abroad program.

The University offers over 300 internationally recognised undergraduate and postgraduate degrees across its Faculties of Law, Society & Design, Health Sciences & Medicine and Bond Business School. Also on campus are Bond College – offering university pathway programs – and the Bond University English Language Institute.

All students have access to state-of-the-art facilities on Bond’s 50-hectare Gold Coast campus in south-east Queensland, including e-courtrooms modelled on the High Court of Australia, the technology-rich Multimedia Learning Centre, the Bond Institute of Health and Sport and the Macquarie Trading Room. 

Bond’s Career Development Centre works with students to create an individual career pathway and employment outcomes are enhanced through the Beyond Bond program incorporated into every undergraduate degree which develops key employability skills.

This personalised approach to education, combined with its focus on industry relevance and the commitment to being part of a close-knit community, sets Bond apart from every other Australian university.
