market information and software for simulated trading. The film and television editing suites mirror industry
standard facilities providing students with the ability to experience the technology they will be presented with
when they graduate. The Legal Skills facilities provide those studying law with an opportunity to experience
first-hand the workings of a courtroom with replica e-courtrooms and moot courts. These facilities ensure Bond
graduates are totally familiar with workplace environments and technologies from their first day on the job.

Complementing Bond’s academic features, you’ll also find a comprehensive selection of recreational and social

tennis, dancing and volleyball.

Fast track study program

their peers and saving money on living expenses.

Bond graduates have the highest percentage rate of full-time employment when compared with graduates from Australia’s
leading Group of Eight Universities due to our extensive network of business/industry partnerships. Bond University
is currently Australia’s highest rating University for graduate outcomes according to the 2009 Good Universities

first choice for many leading blue-chip employers. Bond’s Career Development Centre assists students and Alumni to
find positions during and after university.
