Bond University is Australia’s leading independent, not-for-profit university. Bond offers a personalised academic environment that prepares students for success in their future careers and life goals.

For over a decade, Bond has stood strong as Australia’s number one university for student experience, achieving more 5-star ratings for student experience than any other university in Australia, according to the 2018 Good Universities Guide. On the world stage, Bond is ranked in the top 20 of the world’s best small universities by Times Higher Education (THE).

Bond students learn in world-class facilities from world-renowned academics, high-profile industry leaders and internationally recognised researchers. With just over 4,000 students on campus, our small class sizes and low student-to-staff ratio ensures our academics are not just teachers, but mentors, and know their students by name.

Right now, our students are preparing for the global workforce by gaining international industry experience during their degrees through exchanges, scholarships, internships, research and graduate placements. Whether it’s through a clinical placement in the Solomon Islands or a Model UN competition in Japan, Bond students are growing, experiencing and discovering the Bond advantage goes well beyond the classroom.

By undertaking three semesters per year instead of the usual two, our students complete their degrees earlier than students from other universities, both in Australia and around the world, and Bond graduates are out in the workplace earning sooner and accelerating their opportunity for promotion.

Bond has more than 300 internationally recognised undergraduate and postgraduate degrees on offer across its Faculties of Law, Society & Design, Health Sciences & Medicine and Bond Business School. Also on campus is Bond University College, which offers university pathway programs, and the Bond University English Language Institute.

The Beyond Bond program, which all undergraduate students complete, helps to develop key employability skills to enhance our graduate’s employment outcomes. What also makes Bond’s student experience unique is its Career Development Centre, which works with every student to create an individual career pathway.

A degree from Bond is not only an investment in your future; it’s an investment in lifelong friendships, once-in-a-lifetime experiences and worldwide connections.
