Why Study Sport in Australia?


Bond University Sports Alumni

While Sam Coad was studying Sports Science at Bond, he completed internships with the Gold Coast Titans rugby league team and the Queensland Reds rugby union squad. He also met the University of Michigan’s Director of Strength and Conditioning for their legendary football team, the Wolverines, who happened to be studying his PhD at Bond at the same time.

Through his contacts and experience, Sam scored his first job out of uni as Assistant Strength Coach for the Wolverines and, at just 24 years of age, he is now Performance Manager for the University of Oklahoma’s Sooners.

Master of Sports Management graduate, Stephanie Urroz used her program and experience of Australia's sporting culture to empower a community across the other side of the world. She applied all she had been exposed to and learnt to help change the lives of children and positively impact the sporting culture in her local community in Mexico. 

Steven Farrell was offered a full-time job with the Brisbane Roar football club after he completed a Sports Management internship with them. He is now the Talent Development and Pathways Coordinator for Queensland Cricket.

More recently, Singaporean Sports Science student Shiqi Thng undertook an internship with the Australian Institute of Sport, which included helping to coach Olympic athletes for the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Bond University offers a range of degrees in sport from exercise and sports science to sports management, nutrition and dietetic practice to physiotherapy.
