A close-knit campus in a stunning location near the beach

Given the continuing challenges related to COVID-19 situation, including border closures, Arcadia Abroad has made the decision to suspend our programs in Australia for Spring 2022. We are pleased to continue accepting applications for the Fall 2022 term.


With around 5,000 students Bond University is small by Australian standards: it’s perfect if you are looking to study abroad in a highly supportive environment on a small, modern campus with small, focused classes. It’s also located just 30 minutes by bike from the stunning beaches of Australia’s Gold Coast!

Bond, a private university, has three full trimesters, mirroring the US academic calendar and giving you the flexibility to study in Australia without missing the opportunity for a summer internship or job back home. Courses are available in business, communications, law, IT, humanities, sports management, psychology and the health sciences, many with a specific focus on Australia. The Faculty of Business is AACSB accredited.

Outside the classroom you'll find that Bond's location on the Gold Coast is ideal for exploring the environment that makes Australia so unique. Beaches, temperate rain-forests and Brisbane, with its 1.7 million people, are all within easy reach by bus.

Bond University was one of the most life-changing experiences of my life. ”
