BOND REACHES A QUARTER CENTURY

BOND REACHES A QUARTER CENTURY

BOND University celebrated its 25th anniversary this week, attracting alumni from around the globe back to the Gold Coast.

Australia’s first and only fully private university, Bond now has over 4000 students and 1000 employees.

In 1992, the businessman was declared bankrupt and subsequently convicted of fraud, serving four years jail time.

There was also the battle of establishing the reputation of the private, not-for-profit institution against the strength of free tertiary education across the country.

The university’s accelerated learning model, small group learning and cutting-edge facilities became vital in differentiating the Bond offering.

“We have established a reputation which is the envy of many higher education institutions and the University is primed for significant growth and further development over the next 25 years.”

He says the entrepreneurial spirit of the Gold Coast influenced the university from the outset.

The establishment of the School of Medicine in 2004 made many within the higher education sector sit up and take notice of Bond as the first private university to offer medicine in Australia.

“Our reputation now sees us regularly attract OP 1 students from other institutions around the country and also a high standard of academic staff who could in reality choose to lecture anywhere in the world, but they come to Bond.

The 25th Anniversary Gala Ball will be held on Saturday May 17 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.
