Isabel shares her Bond experience

My Bond journey began with a stab in the dark. Applying to a university in term three of Year 11 is certainly no typical process. But Bond University is no typical institution, and that is evident the moment you first step onto campus. Bond is here for their students, and makes it their mission to give them every opportunity. Bond University College is an invaluable educational experience for any aspiring student. You are immersed in learning environment that is supportive and inspiring - all while exposing students to the same rigorous academic structure and social lifestyle as any other university student. The wide variety of faculties touched upon offers students the opportunity to refine their strengths and improve skills whilst exposing which areas are most appealing and others perhaps not so much. The true gift of Bond University College is the silver platter of options offered to ensure the degree followed thereafter is something one will be truly happy following as a career

Thomas shares his Bond experience

I was unsure if I wanted to study or not, but when a friend recommended the Bond University Preparation program I decided to enrol, study hard and see what happened. It turned out to be a great decision, as I learnt a lot about areas I was unfamiliar with, developed skills that would prove invaluable in the future and forged some great friendships. After graduating Bond University College with high grades, I was awarded a Dean's Scholarship and decided to study a Bachelor of Interactive Media and Design at Bond University. I am now in my fifth semester and hope to study further once I graduate.

Chantal shares her Bond experience

I commenced at Bond University College in 2011 in substitution for grade 12. I received top of class and was accepted to study Law. The two semesters of College study were the most interesting and refreshing of all my years at school. I found the subjects to be relevant and thought provoking which was a definite change to the curriculum offered at mainstream schools. Being in a university setting and being taught by tertiary academics made a difference to how I viewed my education and it was a pleasure to attend every day. I found the tutorial system to be highly beneficial to ironing out any queries with the work and the friendly and relaxed classes made for easy retention of knowledge. For anyone wanting a smooth and easy transition to university life, Bond University College is the solution for which I wholeheartedly recommend. I am currently in my final semester of a Bachelor of Laws which I have chosen as I feel it will facilitate my progression into politics. My student life at Bond has been all that I could have wished for, incredibly busy, interesting, full of varied opportunites and personally satisfying.
