“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.
