Hear from our Bondies

  • I started with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Bond and now I’m doing my Master of Science by Research (Health Sciences). Studying a second degree at Bond was a no brainer because I felt supported by the professors in my first degree, who are now my supervisors in my master’s.  

    I felt I had a connection with the way that they teach, and I also got to see them a lot due to the open-door policy, which means I can ask questions whenever I feel unsure or confused about something.
