Reviews of Bond University
This a great film school who has developed to a high standard throughout the last years! I only have positive things to say about it and its staff! Being the only private university in Australia it affords to hire the best staff and that's worth your tution fees! The international student body also brings a great atmosphere to the campus that I appreciated a lot. Where else do you have around 10 different nations on your student film crew? Another positive factor is the location of Bond University, on the Gold Coast of Australia. 5 min to the beach! And around 15 min from Warner Brothers Studios and Panavision Australia. This comes in handy for the student film projects! I had a great experience at Bond Film Shool and will highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of studying film in Australia!
Like any film school, you only get out of it what you put, with the course structure quick to separate the strong from the weak. It's overpriced, and sometimes neglected by the rest of the University, but has decent equipment and is eager to be milked for all it's worth. Lecturers fall into the old "those who can't do, teach" adage, but are always willing to help and teach you all they know. You're given plenty of opportunities to develop your craft (and show off along the way), and most could certainly do worse.
Doesn't have much equipment compare to the money we've paid.
