We’re heading back to Bond University for our second national Women in Media conference. Here is a bit of information about the institution on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
Bond is Australia’s first private non-profit university where independent thought and entrepreneurial spirit are part of our DNA.
The university focusses on student outcomes, scoring more than 90 per cent in the most recent Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching survey compared with the national average of 78.4 per cent. For more than a decade the students have voted it number one as the best student experience ahead of all other major Australian universities.
Students and employers rate Bond so highly because of its low student-to-academic ratio and real-world initiatives such as the Transformer which connects students with industry professionals to launch businesses and incubate ideas before graduation.
Bond offers the only Bachelor of Actuarial Science degree in Queensland, delivering graduates into one of the world’s fastest-growing careers.
It’s world-renowned Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice is addressing some of the most pressing medical challenges of our time, including the overuse of antibiotics.
The university is building on the legacy of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games at its Institute of Health and Sport where students work alongside elite athletes.
And with the Gold Coast the home of Hollywood blockbusters and the Logies, the university’s film and television school is in tune with the needs of creative industries.
Bond’s journalism program engages strongly with the modern media, including embedding students with the 2018 Women in Media Conference which the university is proud to host for a second year.
