Program Description:

Bond University Program Banner
A close-knit campus in a stunning location near the beach

With around 5,000 students Bond University is small by Australian standards: it’s perfect if you are looking to study abroad in a highly supportive environment on a small, modern campus with small, focused classes. It’s also located just 30 minutes by bike from the stunning beaches of Australia’s Gold Coast!

Bond, a private university, has three full trimesters, mirroring the US academic calendar and giving you the flexibility to study in Australia without missing the opportunity for a summer internship or job back home. Courses are available in business, communications, law, IT, humanities, sports management, psychology, and the health sciences, many with a specific focus on Australia. The Faculty of Business is AACSB accredited.

Outside the classroom, you'll find that Bond's location on the Gold Coast is ideal for exploring the environment that makes Australia so unique. Beaches, temperate rainforests, and Brisbane, with its 1.7 million people, are all within easy reach by bus.

 
  • Film and photography students will have access to state-of-the-art equipment that is often not available to students in the states.
 
  • Over 70 clubs and societies to choose from and a lively social scene.
 
  • Bond has learning support officers who offer you free individual sessions to help you achieve your best, through helping with essay writing, time management skills, referencing, and more.
 
  • About half of Bond's student body is made up of international students, giving campus a truly diverse and vibrant feel. 
 
Excursions & Activities

With Arcadia, you learn beyond the classroom. Travel to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses, through Arcadia's planned excursions and activities. Arcadia Australia offers a wonderful array of excursions and activities impacted by the location of your program to bring you unique experiences. These excursions and activities range from urban locations, coastal regions, rural bushlands, rainforests, and tropical islands. They provide you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture, environment, traditions, and with the people of these places. You will try new foods, learn new skills, explore incredible places, and learn about the Indigenous peoples of Australia.

Our staff will help you look beneath the surface of everyday life and begin to understand what it means to be Australian. While we encourage you to engage with the culture through your course options, there’s also a world of learning beyond the classroom. All Arcadia excursions are designed to be fun and interactive learning opportunities. We’ll open the doors, but it’s up to you to grasp the opportunity and enjoy a life-changing experience. Our excursions are fun and interactive opportunities to visit places off the beaten track.
