As Australia’s first private non-profit university, Bond University seeks to be recognised internationally as a leading independent university, imbued with a spirit to innovate, a commitment to influence and a dedication to inspire tomorrow’s professionals who share a personalised and transformational student experience.

Why Bond?

Because we do things differently.
From a student perspective, Bond University stands alone. The reason why? Well, actually there are three of them, all which add up to a far better university experience and outcome for you - regardless of which field of study you choose.
  1. FINISH YOUR DEGREE SOONER
    At Bond, you won’t be losing time with long breaks between semesters. We run three full semesters a year, with intakes in January, May and September. This means for certain programs you can complete 12-subject master’s in just a year. It also means you don’t have to wait until next February or July to get started on your degree. If you’re ready to get your future underway, our next intake is just around the corner.
  2. BE MENTORED BY WORLD LEADING ACADEMICS
    Bond’s personalised teaching philosophy means you will learn in smaller class sizes with unprecedented one-on-one access to your professors. Even outside 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.
  3. GRADUATE BETTER PREPARED
    At Bond, we believe education goes beyond the classroom. Part of our unique approach is to help you develop a strong foundation of leadership attributes that will prepare you for success and rapid career progression. 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.
