Comments about Bachelor of International Relations - On Campus - Robina - Queensland

  • Objectives
    Global and regional interdependence means that no nation – least of all Australia – is unaffected by developments beyond its borders. National survival is now premised on international orientation. This means that businesses, for example, need people equipped not only with business skills but also with competencies in international relations.
  • Practical experience
    Work Experience & Internships Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree. This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace.
  • Entry requirements
    Successful completion of Year 12 or equivalent, Bond College Certificate.
  • Academic title
    Bachelor of International Relations
  • Course description
