Big boost for the Bond University Institute of Health & Sport
Yes, it’s true! The Bond University Institute of Health & Sport precinct on the Gold Coast is set to get a major upgrade!
Set to open in August 2023, the new north extension will feature cutting-edge facilities to complement Bond University’s existing Institute of Health & Sport precinct in Robina. It will connect to the university’s existing High Performance Training Centre and double the current space for allied health programs.
The $45-million project represents Bond’s confidence in their in-demand allied health degrees, including the Doctor of Physiotherapy and Master of Occupational Therapy, both popular programs among Canadians.
