Exclusive for MAD Academy Students:

Complete your Bachelors Degree in only

MAD Academy and Bond University have signed an Articulation Agreement whereby MAD students are granted advanced standing status (ie. transfer credits) toward a Bachelors degree at Bond University, Australia.


Qualifying Programs at Bond

The advanced standing arrangement applies to the following degrees at Bond University.


  1. Bachelor of Film & Television - credit given for 8 MAD classes.
  2. Bachelor of Interactive Media & Design - credit given for 8 MAD classes.
  3. MAD academy students may also apply for any of the other 28 Bachelors degrees offered at Bond, but transfer credits will be assessed on a case by case basis. You can view the complete list of Bond programs here.


The Australian Education Advantage

Australian education is ranked as 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

Academy Grads

Each program requires 24 classes to graduate. So with credit given for 8 of those classes, this leaves 16 classes to be completed. Students enroll in 4 classes per semester. So to complete 16 classes, it will take 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.
