A day in the life of a Bond University student

Want to know what life on campus on the Gold Coast is really like? Let’s find out… 

At Bond, you will...

Accelerate your career

In most countries around the world, the standard bachelor’s degree takes four years to complete – but here at Bond, we offer the exact same educational experience in just two years. Our accelerated, three-semester-per-year timetable doesn’t affect the content you learn – it simply means you will finish your degree ahead of your peers at other universities with shorter breaks in between each semester. The same goes for our master’s programs, which take between 12 months and two years to complete. 

Prepare to excel in Australia – or back home

With Canadian professors on our teaching staff, we’re able to offer Canadian students a uniquely tailored experience throughout their studies. Blend life in another country with programs that will equip you to work either here in Australia, or back home in Canada. Bond degrees have an international reputation, and are recognised for professional accreditation across several industries, including law, nutrition, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy.  

Enjoy our award-winning student experience

Bond University has been ranked #1 in Australia for undergraduate student experience for the past 17 years, according to the Good Universities Guide. We have made it our mission to provide a personalised, supportive, and inclusive student experience that ensures you have the best possible time at university, and are prepared for a standout career after graduation. From professional networking and industry placements, to campus clubs and events, life at Bond – and beyond – is full of opportunity. 

Forge a global network

At Bond, we make it possible to foster a global career and take your reach international. During your degree, you will receive personalised career support from our Career Development Centre, and learn from academics with extensive real-world experience. After you finish your studies, you will join an alumni network that spans 130 countries and over 30,000 graduates, with chapters in Vancouver and Toronto, and will have access to our strong and varied connections to employers in Canada.
