Australia Study Center
Bond University offers a personalized academic environment with access to unparalleled academic and technological resources. At Bond, students thrive in smaller study groups where top professors and industry-experienced lecturers know them by name. By undertaking three-semesters-per-year instead of the usual two, graduates finish their studies sooner.
Lecture theaters, case-study rooms and tutorial rooms are conveniently located in the University Centre building. Several student restaurants, cafes and bars circle the lake, and on-campus accommodation is within walking distance of all university facilities. The study facilities are world-class, incorporating high-tech lecture theaters, the latest broadband and wi-fi connections, and libraries that are ranked among Australia's best.
Complementing these academic features, you'll find a comprehensive selection of recreational and social outlets that encourage interaction between students outside the classroom. With a much smaller number of students than other universities, no one gets lost in the crowd.
Housing consists of double rooms with two single beds, chest of drawers, bedside tables, wardrobe, bookshelves, telephone and Internet access. All on-campus rooms and common rooms are non-smoking. Linens are provided, and the rooms are serviced weekly. All rooms are air-conditioned. Also included is a pre-paid (approx $1760 AUD) swipe card which can be used at any of the campus-owned dining facilities.
As course times will not be available until right before departure, students are encouraged to get more than four courses approved.
Fall: September- December
Spring: January - May
