What our students say

Ella Cohen

International Hotel and Tourism Management Student

"Every aspect of campus life attracted me; the clubs, the support, small class sizes and the campus itself. The ability to fast track my degree was another reason I chose Bond. And it definitely lived up to all my expectations! I will be a university graduate at 19 years of age, having been mentored by world-leading academics and undertaken real-life work experience. A degree from Bond isn’t just another degree. It really will set you up for the real world in many ways and you’ll create unforgettable memories while you’re here."

James Taylor

International Hotel and Tourism Management Student

“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."
