Bond University is Australia’s leading independent, not-for-profit university, dedicated to creating and supporting the next generation of corporate and community leaders.
Bond students are offered a personalised educational experience of the highest standard, taught in small classes where the professors know students by name and understand their ambitions. Access to mentoring by world-renowned academics, and lectures taught by high-profile industry achievers are accompanied by a core skills program which teaches leadership, critical thinking, and communication skills.
Ranked number one in Australia
Bond’s commitment to delivering personalised learning and well-rounded graduates has seen the Good Universities Guide rank Bond as No.1 for student experience, 15 years in a row. Bond’s student-to-teacher ratio of 10:1 was also recognised by the latest results, ranked the best in Australia. At undergraduate level, Bond was judged best in Australia in three categories: student support, learning resources, and learner engagement. At postgraduate level, Bond led the nation in skills development and student support.
Since opening in 1989, Bond has pioneered the three-semesters-per-year system, so its graduates are beginning their careers and earning an income earlier. Future employability is a key focus at Bond, with the University’s approach already standing out: the Federal Government’s 2018 and 2019 Employer Satisfaction Survey ranked Bond as Australia’s top university for producing graduates employers want to hire.
Employable, future-focused graduates
Bond University’s strong focus on employability also includes guidance through its Career Development Centre, the Beyond Bond professional development program, and its co-curricular entrepreneurship program Transformer.
In 2019 Bond launched a collection of revolutionary new Transformation Degrees in Digital, Health, Law, and Entrepreneurship. The degrees are focused on new and emerging careers that aim to produce critical, diverse, and innovative thinkers who are prepared to take on global challenges, by teaching them design thinking, information analysis, problem-solving and change management.
