About Bond University
Bond is Australia's first and only fully private, not-for-profit university. Its flexible curriculum, international student body, and modern facilities make it a very popular destination for study abroad. For those of you looking for a campus-based study abroad experience on a compact campus Bond is often a good fit. As a study abroad student, you can expect to take four courses per semester to earn 16 semester hours of credit. Most courses will be taught by lecture and you'll be free to study across most faculties.
While courses in any subject area are available to you, of particular interest to past participants have been units in business, Australian history and communications including the media and psychology. You'll choose four courses per semester and earn sixteen credits, and can count on classes that are small and offer a uniquely Australian and international perspective.
Bond is also recognized for the convenience of its academic calendar which mirrors the US semester calendar. There are three fourteen-week semesters per year, one starting in early September, one in early January and one in mid-May.
While Bond's campus is compact, you'll find all the services you'd expect to find at a larger university. A recreation center offers sporting facilities which rival any Australian university. Restaurants and gathering spots are also plentiful on-campus. There are a variety of accommodation options available on-campus or across the road. A wide variety of clubs and societies offer further opportunities for integration with Australian and other international students.
