Mona Izzeldin shares her Bond experience

Moving far away from home, I didn't know what to expect but everyone here at Bond is wonderful. It was easy to fit in and make friends that are like a second family to me now. The Foundation Program has given me a new outlook on university life, where the class learning environment is very calm and interesting. It has prepared me to better know what to expect during my degree. I am so glad to be given the opportunity and happy to have made a decision I know I will never regret.

Keefe Ong shares his Bond experience

My journey at Bond has been an enjoyable one. Through it all, I have learnt and experienced many things, which I never would have if I had not studied at Bond. The people are incredibly friendly and made me feel at home, even though it was the first time I had lived in a different country. I also loved the system implemented at Bond, which fostered an environment where students are encouraged to voice their opinions, rather than to just sit and listen. This allows students to be more outspoken and confident, which are important skills when in a working environment. I believe that Bond not only educates students but also prepares them for their future careers. I originally did the Foundation Program and have recently graduated with in honors in my Bachelor of Laws.
I am proud to call myself a Bondie!

Cecilia shares her Bond experience

The community and learning environment at Bond University College has provided me with so many opportunities throughout my studies. I have learned so much both within and outside of the classroom. Bond University College has definitely helped me to adjust and become accustomed to the Australian way of teaching and learning. It is has also been a great place to meet people from all different cultures and backgrounds. By allowing me to learn more about various subjects, as well as people, I have consequently learned more about myself and what I can accomplish at present and in the future.
