THE MOST VALUABLE INVESTMENT YOU WILL EVER MAKE University is your time to decide who you are and what you want to be – as an individual and as a professional. Do you want to follow the crowd and be the same as everyone else or do you want to stand out; be your own person; ready to take the lead and make a real difference in the world? At Bond University, we believe that this is not just about having a degree: it is about having the most forward-thinking, globally-focused degree and combining it with the underlying core skills that make employers sit up and take note. Skills like leadership, communication, team work and ethical values that we incorporate into every undergraduate degree through our only-at-Bond core skills subjects. And the added value of practical experience in your chosen field that you will get from internships, clinical placements and real-life projects through Beyond Bond. We will give you the opportunity to grow personally and professionally through overseas travel with student exchanges, study tours, international competitions, global conferences and volunteering programs. You will get to work on projects that you are passionate about, meet industry leaders, maybe start your own business and pitch it to investors. How can we deliver so much more than any other university? By offering a personalised learning environment based on one of the lowest student to teacher ratios in Australia, where you will be mentored in small classes by world-class academics. That one-on-one support carries right through to the career planning, preparation, and application process; ensuring you will stand out in the employment marketplace when you graduate and throughout your career. Ask any Bondy and they will tell you that coming to Bond University changed the course of their life.

BREWING BIG IDEAS TO MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE I was seven when I visited Africa for the first time. My experiences there, and in particular Kenya, have taught me the value of education; when someone manages to get a good education, they’re not only supporting themselves, but can make a big impact on society. I got involved in the Transformer program at Bond during my Business and Commerce degrees, attending workshops and information sessions that sparked my interest in entrepreneurship. Through Transformer’s industry connections, I met a social entrepreneur who was helping to set up solar electricity in Africa and it got me thinking: how could I make an impact on global issues? I was waiting for a coffee at Bond when the idea for Nice Coffee Co. was born. In Kiberia, Kenya, most people live on a single dollar a day – so imagine what you could do with the price of a coffee? The Transformer program, Bond Business Accelerator, an international internship and a global entrepreneurship competition hosted on campus have all helped me to turn Nice Coffee Co. from idea to reality. The leadership, ethical and critical thinking skills I’m learning in my degree ensure I’m a well rounded, future focused graduate. My teachers have gone above and beyond to help along the way; my accounting and negotiation lecturers regularly give me business advice and I have access to professional legal advice whenever I need it. Through Nice Coffee Co., we use ethically sourced Kenyan coffee to supply beans-and-machine packages to offices and companies that want their dollars to make a difference. All profits go to St John’s Primary School in Kiberia teaching 450 students. Around 100 schools have been closed in Kenya, so it’s so important to keep this school open to ensure these kids get the education they deserve and are a step closer to breaking the cycle of poverty.

HOW IS A DEGREE STRUCTURED Applicants who have not previously studied at university would normally enrol in an undergraduate Bachelor degree or Diploma. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS Admission to a Bachelor degree is based on Year 12 academic results (ATAR, IB or equivalent) or on the completion of a recognised pathway program. From 2020, the Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) will replace the Overall Position (OP) as the pathway to tertiary study for Queensland Year 12. The ATAR will be introduced for students commencing Year 11 in 2019, who will graduate in 2020 and seek entry to tertiary programs from 2021. This will bring Queensland in line with other Australian states and territories. BACHELOR DEGREE An undergraduate award of 24 subjects which is commonly the entry qualification for many professions or further study. Each subject has a value of 10 credit points (cps). Some subjects may only be worth 5cps; others may be worth 20cps if they involve a major industry project or thesis. Ultimately, the value of subjects successfully completed will need to total 240cps for a standard Bachelor degree. (Exceptions include Bachelor of Laws and our ^Medical Program.) PREREQUISITES Some Bond University programs require specific ATAR subjects as a prerequisite. Please refer to page 59. COMBINED DEGREES Bond’s accelerated schedule inspires many students to undertake a combined degree.

Bachelor of Laws combinations are particularly popular, with the Bachelor of Business / Bachelor of Laws taking just 3 years and 8 months (11 semesters). Undergraduate-postgraduate pathways are also in demand. A Bachelor of Commerce and Master of Accounting can be completed in 3 years 4 months (10 semesters). This is just one more reason why Bond graduates stand out from the crowd - you could graduate with two degrees in the same time it takes for others to complete one. MAJORS, MINORS AND DOUBLE MAJORS A major is a cluster of six elective subjects selected from one area of specialisation, a minor is four subjects and a double major is 12 subjects. FOUNDATION SUBJECTS AND ELECTIVES Each degree will comprise a specified number of compulsory foundation subjects and electives. In many cases, Bond allows electives to be chosen from any Faculty, enabling you to design your degree to suit your individual career ambitions or personal interests. DIPLOMA Diplomas are non-degree offerings which are offered in practical and occupational fields of study. A Diploma can also be completed as a pathway for students who do not meet the academic requirements for direct entry into their chosen Bachelor degree.

WHAT YOUR ATAR RANK REALLY MEANS The Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) is a number between 0 and 99.95 that indicates your position relative to all the other students who finish Year 12 at the same time. It is worked out by a formula that considers your results from every subject, balancing your strong subjects, your weak subjects and core subjects like English that are essential to further study. ATAR is used by Australian universities as an entry requirement for various courses, not only as an assessment of academic capability, but also as a way to limit student enrolments according to the number of places available. A high entry ATAR may indicate that there is a strong demand for a particular program but may also mean that there is a high academic standard required for that degree.

The most important thing is to choose a study program that matches your interests. Whether you’re passionate about being a doctor, a lawyer, an entrepreneur or a journalist, you will do well in your studies if you choose the right degree for you. If your ATAR does not meet the entry requirements for your chosen program or if you chose not to get an ATAR, there are alternative pathways to university study through Foundation Programs and Higher Education Diplomas, such as those offered by Bond University College.

^Medical Program is comprised of two sequential degrees - Bachelor of Medical Studies and Doctor of Medicine. Applications for Medical Program must be lodged through QTAC.

I don’t teach facts, I teach ideas. I’m not interested in my students regurgitating facts and theories about stats; I want them to understand the real reasons behind data analysis methods and understand how and when analytic techniques should, and more importantly shouldn’t, be used. Data analysis is the skill of the future. If you know how to understand and analyse data, there is no industry or career in the world you can’t be involved in somehow.

Bond University is one of a kind and leaves a strong impression. I moved to Australia to improve my English. I met amazing people from around the world and I had the opportunity to learn from passionate teachers who motivated me and pushed me to do my best. After completing my English studies I enrolled in a diploma, followed by a Bachelor of Business. Here, I made friends for life but also attended fascinating classes with interesting professors.

BONDIES ABROAD IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Our studies have allowed us to gain a more extensive range of knowledge of different cultures and traditions, such as how the American political system works and the rules of an American football game.

The United States is so much more than we had expected. The people of West Virginia are incredibly welcoming and made us feel at home the second we arrived. We wouldn’t change the experience for anything. Annabel Fuller, Bachelor of Journalism and Ruby Yates, Bachelor of Business

WVU is the largest university in the state of West Virginia with around 30,000 students. The entire state is full of proud Mountaineers, sporting college colours and singing the team song around town.

Travelling around the US has been one of the highlights of our exchange. We haven’t had to go too far to experience something new. We have been fortunate enough to visit Pittsburgh, DC, Chicago, New York City, Tennessee, California and Nevada.

Our exchange semester at West Virginia University (WVU) has been incredible. We can both say with certainty that living the “American dream” has been one of the best experiences of our lives.
