Bond the best uni for three years

BOND University on the Gold Coast has been rated the best in Australia in the 2010 Good Universities Guide.

Australia's first private university earned the most five-star ratings across nine performance indicators, including getting a job, teaching quality and graduate starting salaries.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Stable said this was the third consecutive year Bond has been the only university nationwide to achieve a five-star assessment in all areas.

The guide found Bond business and management graduates scored the equal highest rates of employment in Australia, with salaries as high or higher than any other similar graduates in the country.

“Bond maintains a strong focus on the individual and fostering opportunities, so graduates are work-ready for the world stage,” said Prof Stable.

“We are distinct from other universities in that we are private and not-for-profit, comparatively small in size and unique in our approach to teaching.

“Our five-star assessment in the Good Universities Guide acknowledges the outstanding success of our graduates, our consistent focus on quality, and the commitment of our world-class teaching staff.”

“Bond continues to bring a new dimension to tertiary education.”
