May, semester 2 at Bond University has well and truly commenced with many of the regional and local students settling into their accommodation and various study programs.
Since opening on April 1, we have seen an impressive number of scholarship applicants. It is particularly pleasing to see so many regional students who have taken the opportunity to begin their applications. Over the coming weeks I will be visiting Schools in Mackay, Rockhampton and Yeppoon to speak about the unique advantages of attending Bond University and the scholarship opportunities available. If your school would like to be added to the list please feel free to contact me. Please continue to encourage your students to take advantage of the many scholarship opportunities on offer before the closing date of July 31, 2013.
During the month of June, Investing in Your Future Seminars will be conducted in Rockhampton (Tuesday, June 4), Brisbane (Wednesday, June 12) and Toowoomba (Monday, June 17). These seminars provide excellent opportunities for students and their parents to explore and understand all that Bond University has to offer. At each seminar I discuss tertiary education as an investment in the future; cover the key differences between an education at Bond and the alternatives; the various programs that are offered; and highlight the options available for financing your investment including FEE-HELP.
Open Day this year will be held on Sunday, July 14 from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm for more information please visit www.bond.edu.au/open-day.
If there are any regional students who are very interested in studying at Bond in 2014, and who would like to attend Open Day this year please ask them to contact me on 0417 757 724.
