Diploma Programs launched at Bond

Bond University has launched its first diploma programs through Bond College, which will commence this year.

Four diploma programs are now available in the areas of criminology, business, communications and sports management, providing individuals with the opportunity to up-skill and offering a pathway to university studies.

Pro Vice-Chancellor Catherine O’Sullivan says Bond College, which is located on Bond University’s beautifully landscaped campus, is fully integrated with the University’s educational structure and lifestyle.

"The existing programs at Bond College have been designed with a concentrated emphasis on intellectual development, academic processes and clear thinking, to provide a strong introduction to University study," she said.

"The diplomas have been implemented to expand the academic programs on offer through the College and will provide graduates with guaranteed entry into the Bond University undergraduate degree of their choice, provided their grades meet the entry requirements.

"These programs will teach students the core skills to enhance their career prospects, whether that is a student fresh out of school or someone wishing to upgrade their qualifications."

Bond College has intakes in January, May and September each year, in line with Bond University’s intakes, allowing for easy progression from the College to the University.

The criminology, business and communications diploma programs will commence in May, with the sports management diploma scheduled to begin in September," Ms O'Sullivan said.

"The Diploma of Criminology provides a fascinating introduction to the study of criminology, which requires one to draw on knowledge from a range of disciplines such as law, sociology, psychology and history.

"This diploma helps students to become familiar with the criminal justice system with particular focus on ethics, morals and cultural beliefs."

The Diploma of Business offers a broad foundation for a range of career opportunities in the corporate sphere.

"Students will develop core skills through an introduction to subjects like accounting, economics, marketing and organisational behaviour," Ms O'Sullivan said.

"For those interested in film and television, journalism and multimedia, the Diploma of Communications will open up a range of career and further study opportunities.

"Successful completion of the Diploma of Communication will provide students with either a pathway to Bond University undergraduate degrees or to start their career in media, corporate communications, public relations or event management."

Ms Catherine O’Sullivan says she is working to drive the University's strategic direction to advance the role of sport through industry partnerships and involvement, and the Diploma of Sports Management will provide students with an incredible opportunity to enter the captivating world of sport.

“Sport has the potential to be the vehicle that drives social change.  I have been looking at how we at Bond University, can improve the net value of sport by ensuring athletes have an opportunity to access responsive and flexible education opportunities,” she said.

"The Diploma of Sports Management will teach students an understanding of sport and athlete development, how to produce sporting information and media content, and gain skills such as managing teams, leadership, communicating in groups, conflict resolution, problem solving, rational and critical thinking, and managing finances.

"This program offers a range of subjects to equip students with the necessary knowledge to work with sporting teams, clubs, players and organisations.

"It is a program that will appeal to young people interested in sport right through to professional athletes looking to create opportunities for themselves post-career."

On completion, students will graduate with eight subjects credited towards the respective degree, which in turn will shorten shortens the duration of bachelor study by two semesters.

Bond College offers its students state-of-the-art facilities, small class sizes and access to some of the world’s best teaching staff.

As members of the university community, Bond College students also enjoy access to Bond’s libraries, IT resources and research facilities, as well as student support services, recreational facilities and accommodation.
