Bond University is Australia's first and largest private university. It emphasizes personalized instruction and innovative courses and teaching methods. Unlike most other Australian universities, Bond offers a 14 week semester system that corresponds to the typical academic year in the United States. Here are the important details you need to know to study at Bond University:
Students must submit the SUNY Application to Study Abroad and Exchanges by the deadlines stated in the above section. Once the SUNY application has been submitted, Study Abroad and Exchanges will then provide a link to an online application for Bond University.
You must take at least three courses, but no more than four per semester. Bond offers academic programs in Australian studies, business, communication and media studies, criminology, film and television, hospitality management, information technology, international business, Japanese, journalism, marketing, psychology, and sports management. You may find course ("subjects") descriptions on Bond University's website. (Please make sure you click "Display only Study Abroad subjects" at the bottom of the search page).
You reserve and pay for housing directly with Bond in Australian dollars. SUNY Plattsburgh will tell you what to do after you have been accepted. There is a $600 (Australian) deposit required at the time of reservation. Bond has several types of accommodations available to students, though not all types may be available. You must also purchase a meal plan. Plans range from 10 to 19 meals per week and cost between $1350 and $2150 Australian. Bond will also arrange for someone to pick you up at the Brisbane International or Coolangatta Airports. For more information, visit Bond University Student Residences.
Bond is located in Gold Coast in Southeast Queensland, about an hour east of Brisbane. The Gold Coast is one of Australia's largest cities. The local climate is sub-tropical, and there is plenty of sunshine all year round. It currently represents the fastest growing region in Australia, and has a current population of 540,000.
