Bond's links to Canada
Bond University has strong ties to Canada. The University has trained standout Canadian graduates for more than 20 years, with alumni going on to forge impressive careers in North America and beyond. As Australia’s first private, not-for-profit university, Bond offers a personalised learning experience that prepares graduates for success.
Accelerated, three-semester-per year timetable
Bond’s three-semester academic calendar means graduates gain a competitive advantage by completing their degrees faster and entering the workforce sooner. A six-semester bachelor degree, equivalent to a 4 year degree in Canada or the USA, can be completed in just 2 years, saving 12 months to 2 years compared with other Australian universities or studying at home in Canada.
Australia's #1 university for student experience
The University has been ranked number one in Australia for student experience for 14 consecutive years by the 2020 Good Universities Guide. Its commitment to delivering an outstanding and highly individualised student experience means students receive personal attention and mentorship during their studies.
Bond’s focus on personalised learning, combined with our world-class teaching staff and work-integrated learning, has resulted in its graduates being ranked number one in Australia for employer satisfaction for the past two years.
Bond has extensive connections to employers in Canada and around the world, and networking opportunities are available to every student throughout their degree. As a Bondy, students join an active alumni network spanning 30,000 graduates across 120 countries, including chapters in Toronto and Vancouver.
