What our students say

Tye Brozak

Executive Assistant Manager, Meriton Suites and International Hotel and Tourism Alumna

"After graduating from John Paul College, Brisbane in 2008, I decided I needed a university qualification if I ever wanted to be in a Senior Management position. My goal when starting at Bond University was to become a Hotel Manager by the time I turned 30 years old and have been fortunate enough to achieve this at the age of 27. Bond helped me achieve the success I have today and gave me the knowledge, skills and ability to confidently pursue my future successes. The small class sizes allowed academics to provide a personalised approach in their teaching methods which has led to lifelong relationships."

Bond University International Hotel and Tourism Management Alumnus

“As a Bond student, I was able to have fantastic relationships with my teachers who were also industry professionals before becoming teachers at Bond. You receive lots of industry advice and networking opportunities before graduating. I chose Bond to study Hotel and Tourism due to its location. The Gold Coast is such a large tourism hub of Australia so there were plenty of opportunities to work in the industry part time and study at Bond."
