Student Testimonial

“Bond University’s Journalism degree and the courses it offered were of interest to me because they promoted hands-on practicality. From the outset, the course appeared to give students the chance to gain practical experience across a wide range of journalism mediums, while also encouraging specialisation, even at undergraduate level. Bond University gave me an edge over other graduates. The accelerated course meant I was two to four years younger than the average junior or entry-level reporter. The practical experience I was encouraged to gain through course-work and internships has been invaluable – not just in finding a job, but giving me the confidence to develop faster as a full-time field reporter.”
