Exclusive for MAD Academy Students:
Complete your Bachelors Degree in as little as
1 Year and 4 Months.
MAD Academy and Bond University have signed an Articulation Agreement whereby MAD students are granted transfer credits toward a Bachelors degree at Bond University, Australia.
Dozens of students from Santa Barbara have attended Bond University over the past 10 years and this tradition is expected to grow as a result of this new partnership with MAD Academy.
Qualifying Programs at Bond
The transfer credit arrangement applies to the following degrees at Bond University:
The Australian Education Advantage
Australian education is ranked as one of the worlds best (according the United Nations and The Legatum Prosperity Index). The core difference at the university level is the elimination of general education. Students commence their major on day one. There is no Associates Degree (2 year program) to complete. This allows students to complete a Bachelors degree in most disciplines in just 3 years (at a traditional university with 2 semesters per year). But, at Bond University, we operate three full semesters per year (tri-mester system), which allows for a Bachelors degree to be completed in 2 years. This is a significant time and cost saving.
Fast Track Graduation for MAD
Each program requires 24 classes to graduate. So with credit given for 8 of those classes (as is the case with several programs listed above), this leaves 16 classes to be completed. Students enroll in 4 classes per semester and therefore 16 classes are completed over 4 semesters. This is a total time of 1 year and 4 months. The time and cost savings are significant and will mean returning home with a Bachelors degree while classmates at home are just half way through their Sophomore year. This has a significant impact on advancement on the career ladder, not to mention saving 2 years or more of tuition and living costs.

The Exchange Rate Advantage
The exchange rate for the USA dollar to the Australian dollar provides a significant boost in purchasing power for US residents. Every 1 American dollar converts to $1.30 in Australia. So it's like a 25% OFF EVERYTHING sale when you have American dollars.
