University Overview

Bond University is Australia's leading independent, not-for-profit University. Bond offers a personalised academic environment that enables graduates to exceed the outer limits of their potential in their career and in life.

Bond offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Actuarial Science, Architecture and Built Environments, Business and Commerce, Communication and Creative Media, Health Sciences, Hotel and Tourism, International Relations and Humanities, Law, Medicine, Social Sciences and Sport. As well as offering university pathways and executive programs.

All students have access to academic and technological resources on Bond's world-class Gold Coast campus. Students have open access to industry leaders, corporate high-flyers and notable achievers, who actively participate in Bond's guest-speaker programs.

By undertaking three semesters per year instead of the usual two, students complete their degree studies up to 12 months before their colleagues from other universities. This combined with our Beyond Bond program and optional Transformer program both designed to provide practical opportunities beyond the classroom and engage your entrepreneurial spirit, gives Bond graduates a vital advantage in the ultra-competitive careers market.

This advantage is further driven by graduates themselves. Many within Bond's close-knit global network of alumni now hold upper-echelon management and partnership positions in blue-chip organisations around the world. These graduates maintain that their Bond experience was a key factor in accelerating their careers.


Bond offers a broad range of internationally recognized undergraduate degrees across its faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine, Society and Design, Business and Law. Bond has a close-knit community, low student-to-staff ratio enabling small class sizes and state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities and infrastructure. These are just a few reasons to study at Bond.

Through Bond's extensive corporate partnerships, undergraduate students have access to industry leaders and opportunities for internships, scholarships and graduate placements with a number of blue-chip organizations worldwide. Students can also choose to broaden their horizons by participating in an international exchange program.


Bond University offers a range of postgraduate degrees by coursework or research. Bond University offers three semesters a year, allowing you to complete your studies much earlier than at other universities. For instance, you may be able to complete a master's degree between one year (3 semesters) and one year and four months (4 semesters) at Bond.

Bond's accelerated study mode, combined with the flexibility of cross-faculty subject offerings, gives you the opportunity to tailor your studies to suit your specific career goals or enhance your employability by gaining extra qualifications.
