Bond tops Australia for student experience for 16 years in a row

Bond University has continued a remarkable streak in the Good Universities Guide rankings, topping Australia in student experience for a 16th consecutive year.

This year the Gold Coast university has gone a step further by notching five-star ratings in every student experience category including learner engagement, learning resources, skills development, student support, teaching quality and overall educational experience.

The results span both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Bond is also rated No.1 for its low student-teacher ratio, while the university’s acclaimed medicine program has a 100 percent employment rate for graduates.

The guide ranks 39 Australian universities.

Bond University Vice Chancellor, Professor Tim Brailsford, said the university was proud to offer an exceptional educational experience in difficult learning conditions.

“We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the maximum five stars in every category of student experience this year. I don’t believe this has ever been achieved before by any university,” Professor Brailsford said.

“We are seeing our absolute focus on providing a world-class, transformational student experience constantly reflected in the ratings and rankings that students provide.

“That is because we put our students and their learning and education at the heart of everything we do, even during a global pandemic.”

Jeremy Bonisch, President of the Bond University Student Association and recipient of a Vice Chancellor’s Elite Scholarship, said he felt uplifted by Bond’s student support. 

“I’ve honestly loved my entire time here at Bond and have been able to do so many incredible things,” the Bachelor of Actuarial Science/Bachelor of Laws student said. 

“The staff are really friendly and open.

“I've never had a lecturer say that they didn’t have time to see me, even when I’ve dropped in unannounced.”

International student Remy Wilding, who is studying her Bachelor of Psychological Science/Bachelor of Laws, said she was drawn to Bond’s diversity. 

“I’m an international student from Singapore and was really attracted to how open Bond is to international students,” Ms Wilding said. 

“I thought it would give me the best integration with students from overseas.”
