Governance & History

On May 15, 1989, Bond University welcomed its first cohort of 322 students at its brand new, state-of-the-art campus on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

The vision for Australia’s first private, not-for-profit university, was to provide an exclusive educational experience consisting of the highest international standards, under the tutelage of the country’s leading academics.When those foundation students graduated as ‘Class of 89’, they were quickly recruited by some of Australia’s most successful corporations. The graduates' subsequent achievements in the workplace firmly established the Bond reputation for excellence.

In the past 30 years the university has grown to become one of Australia’s leading universities with disciplines including medicine, architecture and health sciences. 

Our students have achieved on the global stage, successfully challenging the most prestigious institutions from the USA, UK, Europe and Asia, in high-profile international competitions.

Bond has achieved far beyond all expectations, meeting every challenge with the unbridled spirit of determination and innovation that equally exemplifies its graduates.
