Forbes: Bond Uni one of world’s most expensive – March 12, 2008

Finance magazine Forbes has an interesting – if potentially inaccurate – story about tuition costs at universities around the globe. It highlights some US schools, and counts Quest University (Squamish, BC) and Bond University (Gold Coast, Queensland) amongst the most expensive.

The article isn’t without criticism … Forbes didn’t take tuition fees for foreign students into account, nor total time needed to complete a degree.

Bond’s vice-chancellor Robert Stable points out in The Australian’s article that total time taken to earn the degree needs to be evaluated against lower per-semester tuition. Bond has 3 semesters per year, instead of the standard 2, so its grads enter the workforce and start working & earning sooner than students from other schools.
