Transformation CoLab

For the career of the future  … you’ll need the degree of the future

Every day, we hear that our current students will ultimately work in jobs and professions that have not yet been invented. Already, careers have emerged that didn’t exist five years ago – in virtual reality, artificial intelligence, digital disruption, robotics, genomics, social enterprises and more.

This bold new future calls for a bold new approach to how we prepare for that future.

Beyond Bond (required for all undergraduate students):

  • Our exclusive cocurricular program that formally recognises the wider engagement and experiences students undertake in addition to their academic studies to support their career aspirations.

Education … but not as we know it

The Bond University Transformation CoLab is a game-changer where we’ve broken down the traditional stand-alone silos of business, law, arts and sciences.

Because that’s not how it works in the real world.

You might be a champion athlete – but you’ll need to know how to develop a brand and run global social media campaigns if you want to attract sponsorship. Maybe you’ll make a major health breakthrough – but do you know the legal and ethical issues that will allow you to share your discovery? You might develop the next big thing in VR technology – but you’re going to need to attract some serious investors.

So we’re mixing it up – creating cross-over degrees that blend your chosen study area with the key fundamentals of all these disciplines.

Skills for life

We’re also zooming in on the core professional skills that will set you up for life: Problem-solving, design thinking, communication, leadership, entrepreneurship, the ability to drive change and motivate teams.

You’ll learn how to ANALYSE, DISRUPT and INNOVATE.

Because if the career you choose today gets swamped by technology in 20 years’ time, you’ll have everything you need to not just adapt but to embrace the future and lead the charge.

You’re not going to learn it all in a classroom

Most importantly, we’re breaking you out of the classroom and creating a fully immersive virtual collaboration space where you’ll build solid partnerships with academics, industry coaches and the community while you work with transdisciplinary student teams on passion projects to create REAL solutions to REAL global challenges.
