Overview

Bond University is Australia’s leading independent, not-for-profit university. Bond offers a personalized academic environment that prepares you for success in your future career, goals and endeavours.

As Australia’s first private non-profit university, Bond University seeks to be recognized internationally as a leading independent university, imbued with a spirit to innovate, a commitment to influence and a dedication to inspire tomorrow’s professionals who share a personalized and transformational student experience.

Students at Bond are prepared for the global workforce by gaining international experience during their degrees, inside and outside of the classroom. Bond law students argue mooting cases in Hong Kong, Beijing, Canada, and Queensland’s own Supreme Court, and business students learn from entrepreneurs and start-ups in Silicon Valley. Physiotherapy students can work with elite athletes and professional teams from all over the world, and sports science interns travel to incredible cities like Washington, D.C., Paris, London, and New York.

Why Study Here?

Bond’s personalized approach to education combined with its uncompromising focus on industry relevance sets Bond University apart from every other Australian university. As a Bond student, you will thrive in smaller study groups where eminent professors and industry-experienced lecturers know you by name.

Bond also runs three full semesters a year, with intakes in January, May, and September. This means you can complete a postgraduate degree in law, physiotherapy, or occupational therapy in just 2 years (Degrees: Juris Doctor, Doctor of Physiotherapy, Master of Occupational Therapy).

Canadians often say that one of the best things about studying at Bond is the social life. With a much smaller student population than other universities, it’s easy to meet others from Australia and around the world!

Some popular Bond University programs for Canadian students include law, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy.

“…the instructors are amazing”

Facilities on campus are amazing, best university I have ever been to. Educators are amazing and small class sizes are extremely beneficial to the overall learning experience. I like the class sizes, course material, teaching methods, and the instructors are amazing. Get ready to have the time of your life, whilst learning from the top minds in the profession. Make friends and remember to enjoy your time. Explore this wonderful country.

“Small groups mean one on one relationships with professors”

Love the close knit, small program size that contributes to VERY VERY individualized education. Free student therapy and easy access to medical and other support services. Nothing much that I dislike - other than the price but that's the cost of being an international student! Small groups mean one on one relationships with professors which help with ensuring you are really learning. What I dislike is that we only have two very long placement blocks instead of a bunch of short ones - less chance to try different areas.

“Great professors that know you by name and are looking out for you”

Great professors that know you by name and are looking out for you, great facilities, new friends, accelerates program that is fast pace. I like the instructors, overall material learned thus far and the way it is taught. Not a fan of certain subjects within the program but they are mandatory no matter where u take the degree but the professors make it fun.

“Profs genuinely want you to do well”

Small class sizes, lots of facilities and services for students. Program is more expensive than others though. Profs genuinely want you to do well and want to get to know you.

“Countless resources available”

Facilities (10/10), help services (10/10).  Countless resources available to students. I dislike short tutorial classes (1h) and long lectures (2h). Should be reversed.

“I find the instructors/profs very knowledgeable”

It is a good [university]! I like the campus and the facilities. I find the instructors/profs very knowledgeable. I don't like the pacing of the courses, I find some need much more time and others could be shortened.

“…small class sizes and community partnerships allow for rewarding hands-on, practical experience”

I value how personalized the Master of Occupational Therapy program at Bond University was and how it has shaped me into the professional and resilient Occupational Therapist I am today. The learning experience is diverse; small class sizes and community partnerships allow for rewarding hands-on, practical experience and a chance to explore unique individual interests and career pathways. The thought of moving internationally is daunting but Bond provided an amazing support sys... Read More

“…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.

“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.

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.

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.
