“…the smaller class sizes makes keeping up with programs and finding mentors within the school super easy”

Yes, it is a beautiful campus. the social life there is phenomenal and makes me wish I was still a party guy, but the smaller class sizes makes keeping up with programs and finding mentors within the school super easy. This really is exactly what I want to do and I am learning things that I always wished I could have been.

It is a good environment with lots of resources that students have access to. Most of the professors are very committed to our success and learning process.

“Top notch education”

Yes I do like Bond University. Top notch education and the teacher to student ratio makes it a great learning environment. The program is difficult but I love the profession ...I am enjoying the program.  Be sure to refresh your anatomy and do a bit of prep work in the coming months of your departure. It will make a world of difference.

“There are small classes which helps facilitate my learning”

So far I am enjoying Bond, the staff are the kindest people I have ever met and the campus is absolutely stunning. I am enjoying it so far. There are small classes which helps facilitate my learning, the professors are nice and welcoming. The only negative is that the OT program is on the other campus, not on Bond main campus.

“I love my uni and the program.”

I love my uni and the program. It's very challenging and intense and hard (although that's expected on any law school) but there are so many opportunities and support given.

“…the teacher to student ratio is so good!”

Bond is great! The facilitators and teachers are very personable and the teacher to student ratio is so good! It's a fast paced course so sometimes I feel so far behind and unable to stay caught up.

“The staff do care about your physiotherapy process here”

Both campuses are great. The main campus is absolutely beautiful if most of your classes are there. The staff do care about your physiotherapy process here, which is hard to find.
