About

History

  • On May 15, 1989, Bond University welcomed its first cohort of 322 students at its brand new, state-of-the-art campus on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
  • In the past 30 years the university has grown to become one of Australia’s leading universities with disciplines including medicine, architecture and health sciences. 

Education

  • At Bond, you will not become just another student in the background. You are always visible. Your lecturers will know you, your tutors will invest time in you, so your learning will get the attention it deserves. It’s what sets us apart. An individual approach to learning that makes us different from the rest. And it’s why we produce graduates who get noticed above others.
  • Bond students don’t get lost in the crowd. They get personal attention. They’re visible. They stand out. Now and after they graduate.

Research

Bond University has established University Research Centres to enhance the University's reputation for quality research output and research training.

Our University Research Centres are interdisciplinary and will substantially enhance the University's research base, research income and profile. We also aim to build strategic relationships with other academic institutions and external partners.
