Whether it’s sea, sand and sun that you crave or adrenaline-filled activities and wildlife, Australia’s Gold Coast is anything but boring. While the appeal of the warm weather, beautiful beaches and buzzing nightlife is undeniable, when you study abroad on the Gold Coast you’ll realize that there is a lot more to this region than just the beach…though it’s true that the Bond University campus is just 15 minutes away! The Gold Coast hinterland is home to two of Queensland’s best national parks where you can hike your way through lush rainforest to pristine mountain pools before heading to catch one of the best surf breaks on the coast at Burleigh Heads. On the education front, both universities in the area offer comprehensive academic programs, with Business Schools that are AACSB accredited.
