Description

Study Abroad Coordinator: Katherine Pruess (k.pruess@neu.edu)

Bond University, located on the Gold Coast of Australia (one hour from Brisbane), offers students an opportunity to live and study with other Australian and international students at the first private university in Australia. Bond has a student population of only 2,600 and a student/faculty ratio of only 10:1. This allows students to receive personal attention from its faculty and interact closely with the entire college community.

Students are encouraged to partake in the multitude of activities both on and off-campus. Bond offers students courses in many Arts & Sciences disciplines. The Semester at Bond is purposely scheduled to be compatible with the academic calendar of "American, European, and Asian" universities.
