Bond University's Australian Experience study programs introduce students to the ecology, people, history, and culture of this diverse and fascinating country. Presented as a combination of classroom and fieldwork, our four-week and six-week study programs are designed especially for overseas students to give you in-depth theoretical understanding of the Australian way of life, reinforced by the experience of being exposed to famous cultural, historical and ecological locations throughout Australia.
The six-week program (June-July) explores the variety of this vast and unique country as our learning experiences take you by road, rail, and air to tropical Darwin and the red heart of the Northern Territory; to Canberra, the national capital; to Sydney, home of the world famous opera house and harbour bridge; and on excursions to the spectacular Queensland coast.
The four-week program (July-August) looks more closely at the flora and fauna and special ecological issues presented by the coastal, marine, and rainforest parks of eastern Queensland, concentrating on World Heritage-listed Fraser Island and the tropical forests and coastline including a trip to Hervey Bay. We will spend a few days on Heron Island, where we explore the coral reef and wonders of the Great Barrier Reef.
Programs are scheduled to suite the northern hemisphere summer break. Students may take either or both programs, enabling you to add one, two, or three subject credits to your degree without having to take time out of regular studies at home.
