Catherine O’Sullivan is the pro vice-chancellor for pathways and partnerships at Bond University. In this role, O’Sullivan is overseeing the launch of Bond University College, an on-campus pathway program that brings together the existing university preparation and foundation programs, diplomas and English language courses under the one umbrella.
“Bond University College is fully-owned, fully-operated and fully-integrated into the university structure,” Sullivan said. “It will offer students the same access to campus facilities, resources and social clubs that every other Bond University student enjoys.
“In fact, Bond University College students will undertake some bachelor-level subjects as part of their diploma and attend regular lectures alongside full degree students.
“The difference is that they will also receive extra hours of face-to-face teaching in small groups, working with specialist educators and support staff who can cater to their individual needs by giving them one-on-one help and encouragement.”
In an dialogue with Campus Review, O’Sullivan related at length details about who Bond University College will be marketed at, whether it is a response to VET’s poor reputation and what the future holds for the Gold Coast-based private institute of pedagogy:Do you have an idea for a story?
