Overview


The Bond University is a private not-for-profit university located in Robina, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

As Australia’s first private non-profit university, Bond University seeks to be recognised internationally as a leading independent university, imbued with a spirit to innovate, a commitment to influence and a dedication to inspire tomorrow’s professionals who share a personalised and transformational student experience.

Bond University’s Strategic Plan for 2013 – 2017 sets out the goals and strategies that will secure our position as Australia’s leading independent university. Our Strategic Plan Steering Committee and Management Team has revisited and refreshed our overarching mission statement. They have delivered a plan that reaffirms the values that underpin our core business of providing our students with a uniquely personalised and transformational experience.

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. Modelled on the traditions of the world’s most elite educational institutions, the vision for Australia’s first private, non-profit university was to provide an exclusive educational experience of the highest international standards, under the tutelage of the country’s leading academics.

History


The University was established at the initiative of Alan Bond, the founder and Chairman of Bond Corporation and Harunori Takahashi, President of EIE International. The University’s development was funded via a joint venture between Bond Corporation in Australia and the Japanese entity, EIE International. In 1987, the Parliament of Queensland granted Bond University university status via the passage of the Bond University Act. The University commenced teaching in May 1989 with an initial intake of 322 students.

In 1991, EIE acquired Bond Corporation’s share of the company development that controlled the land on which the University buildings were constructed and the surrounding development lands.

The campus was acquired by Bond University Ltd in its own right in August 1999.
