Bond graduates have best job prospects

Tara Khan graduated with a double degree at 22 and is People and Culture Coordinator at Queensland Airports Limited.

Bond University domestic undergraduates have the best medium-term job prospects in Australia, earning an average of $91,000, new government data reveals.

The federal Department of Education’s latest QILT Graduate Outcomes Survey - Longitudinal found 96.8 percent of Bond’s domestic undergraduates were in full-time employment three years after completing their courses. The average of graduates from all Australian universities was 91.8 percent.

Bond undergraduates also reported strong earnings after three years in full-time employment, averaging $91,000. The average from all other Australian universities is $83,500.

Importantly, most are earning this at a younger age compared to their peers.

Bond University’s accelerated degrees, achieved through shorter holidays and more study, means most undergraduate programs can be completed in two years.

Tara Khan was still in her final year of studies at Bond University when she was offered a role with Queensland Airports Limited.

At 22, she graduated with a Bachelor of Business majoring in International Business, and a Bachelor of Social Science majoring in Psychology and Criminology.  

“That’s what attracted me to Bond in the first place - an accelerated degree was ideal for my lifestyle," Ms Khan said.

“Securing full-time work before I had even graduated took a lot of stress and pressure away. 

“I completed an internship in the final semester of my Business degree through Bond’s partnership with Queensland Airports Limited and then based off a paper I crafted on employee retention, I was offered a full time role as a People and Culture Coordinator towards the end of my internship. 

“Bond’s wide variety of partnerships with industry-leading companies like QAL can certainly help students to get a foot in the door.”

Bond has performed well in several national and international rankings recently, including:

* No.1 for student satisfaction and joint 12th overall in The Australian Financial Review Best Universities Ranking.

* No.43 in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings.

* The top Australian university across a range of measures in a federal government survey of undergraduate students’ educational experience.

* No.8 in the Times Higher Education 2023 World’s Best Small Universities.
