Australian Rugby Union

Enhancing its status as an elite sporting university, Bond is the Official Education Partner of Australia’s national rugby union team – the Qantas Wallabies – and works closely with the sport’s governing body. Bond University is also a naming rights partner of National Rugby Championship side Queensland Country and is the official coach partner of the St.George Queensland Reds and the university partner of QRU.

This strategic partnership provides a range of opportunities for the ARU’s state and national team players, particularly in terms of providing flexible study options that enable them to combine tertiary education with their sporting commitments.

Students in Bond’s Faculty of Health Science and Medicine also benefit from these partnerships by having access to elite professional athletes and ARU clubs for work placements, internships, research and employment opportunities.
