Ond University will continue to be the official higher education partner of the World Surf League (WSL) Australia until at least the end of 2023.
As part of this partnership, Bond University students have the opportunity to complete work experience placements at multiple WSL faculties and participate in WSL events in Australia.
WSL APAC Managing Director Andrew Stark said Bond will have a brand presence at all WSL events in Australia, with further opportunities for unique content collaborations for internet users around the world.
âThe World Surf League is proud to continue what has already been such a successful partnership with Bond University,â said Stark.
âFrom our perspective, the WSL APAC team as well as the world’s largest organization have already benefited greatly from the fact that Bond’s impressive and bright young students offer their new perspectives during internships in the region.
âWe even have a former Bond intern as a valued full-time member of our sales team, which is great proof of the program’s success for WSL and Bond.
âWe would like to thank Bond University and their students for their continued support and look forward to the continued success of the partnership,â he said.
Bond University Vice President for Future Students Cheryl Jolliffe said: “We are delighted to team up with WSL as an official higher education partner for another two years.”
âThrough the continued collaboration with the WSL, we are able to offer students exclusive opportunities to acquire practical skills and develop career paths in one of the fastest growing sports in the world.
“We see a clear example of this with our first WSL partnering intern, Rachael Tilly, who studied sports management at Bond and is now the WSL partnership coordinator,” Jolliffe said.
