GlobaLinks Learning Abroad offers a study abroad program for a semester or a year at Bond University.
The University is considered as Australia's first private, not-for-profit University which gives its students an environment that allows them to improve and go beyond the limits of their potential.
Created in the scholarly traditions of the greatest private universities world-wide, Bond University has a strong component of international students who hail from some 80 countries worldwide. Welcoming just under 5,000 students on campus, Bond University has a genuine commitment to each student by offering a personalised learning environment and the smallest class sizes in Australia (#1 Student to Staff Ratio*).
By undertaking three semesters per year instead of the usual two, graduates finish their studies sooner. Combine this advantage with Bonds commitment to opening doors to blue chip employers and it becomes clear that students graduate with a clear advantage in the ultra-competitive careers market.
At Bond, not only do we offer students the very best state-of-the-art facilities such as the Macquarie Trading room that gives students access to real time market information and real-world simulation of the trading experience and Film and Television Studios that offer a second to none experience, we offer our students unprecedented access to them. This means that students can apply their profession as they learn it, in environments far more akin to the real thing.
Your study abroad experience is all about you! GlobaLinks Learning Abroad is here to assist you in your path of discovery throughout the study abroad experience. We design our programs so that our local and overseas staff are available 24 hours a day to support you in health and safety matters and are also key in enhancing your study abroad experience. Through our planned activities and resident director's personal recommendations for activities you can undertake while abroad, you will be directed on a path of personal, academic, cultural, social, and professional discovery. This team, which supports you throughout your experience, will ensure that you have the most fulfilling experience possible - one that is unique to you! So...What Will You Discover?
Bond University works closely with Student Flights located on campus, to give students the opportunity to participate in different adventures all over Australia and New Zealand. Most students' study abroad schedule allows them time to travel, sight see and experience the best the Gold Coast and surrounding areas have to offer. Opportunities exist for students to participate in organized group trips on the weekends involving visits to the Australia Zoo and home of former Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, surfing tours up and down the east coast of Australia, island hopping in the Whitsundays, a visit to Byron Bay and Fraser Island are a must, snorkeling above the Great Barrier Reef, and possibly a visit to outback Australia and the Northern Territory!
Bond Mate Program
To make a smooth transition to studying and living in Australia , Bond University has a Bond Mate program available for all students to join.
