The infrastructure is amazing. You can use good computers, good places to study like the library, good environmental and good places to eat.
It’s expensive and there are just brazilians and japaneses studing there.
The school is great, the teachers in most cases are very good and the facilities are excelente.
We can use all the facilities of the university, as library, gym and so on.
The teaching methods exceeded my expectations, the classes are dynamic, a lot of times in only one week, I had classes with up to three different teachers, each from a different nationality and accents.
I live in Coolangatta and the negative side is the distance, for sure.
By car it takes around 30 minutes to get to the school.
The highlight is the support provided in every stage.
Thoughtful people always ready to help.
I highly recommend.
Nothing to say.
Very goos Infrastructure, university atmosphere, and quality of education good as well.
Extra classes in the afternoon generally are not as good and makes it harder to find work.
The best infra-estructure, some teachers is very good!
Nationalities mix is very bad, just Japanese and brazilians, some teachers are not good and chamge teachers all de time, don’t have books just prints and is very confused for study
Bond Uni have an amazing infrastructure that can help students in many ways. There are a lot of great teachers at BUELI, that are very committed with their job.
One thing that really affect students in a bad way is that in one week some classes have 2 teachers, sometimes more.Some teachers give classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and other teacher give classes on Thursday and Friday. In my point of view is the worst think they can do, because there`s no connection between them and is almost a lost classes.Electives classes sometimes are a waist of time. Looks like teachers have too much things to teach in just 1:30 min.
The infrastructure is the best that I saw about all schools on Gold Coast. The staff are very kind and helpful to students.
The location is a little difficult because it’s far of every place and the public transport doesn’t help as weel.Had many changes about the teachers and often these changes harm students.
