Federation University Australia (FedUni) is one of the nation’s leading regional universities. With a reputation for relevance and excellence, FedUni has a strong tradition of education and training delivery spanning more than 145 years. 

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive, open access university. We embrace the freedom and dynamism that comes from being a progressive university with close links to industry, business, communities and technology. 

Headquartered in Ballarat, the university’s five campuses from the west of Victoria to the east anchor the range of programs that FedUni delivers throughout Australia and internationally. 

FedUni is recognised as a welcoming and friendly university for international students. We place great emphasis on the quality of our teaching and learning, delivering a range of innovative programs through both our Higher Education and vocational education and training. 

We also are known by our top ranking for teaching quality, as well as the highest level of graduate employment in Victoria and equal highest starting salary, as measured by the Federal Government’s Quality in Learning and Teaching data.

Embracing diversity, FedUni is Australia’s only regional, multi-sector university and a pivotal provider of post-secondary education for regional Victoria. 

Known for its supportive, community environment, FedUni offers affordable study options with small class sizes, friendly staff and accessible academic support. 

Our qualifications are recognised internationally and our graduates continually rate their study experience with five stars. Our students come from more than 40 countries and our many partner providers deliver our programs around the world.

FedUni hosts Australia’s largest regional technology park which accommodates more than 30 companies including its signature tenant, IBM. 

The University’s Tech Park Central in the heart of Ballarat also enables businesses to have a presence at our SMB Campus. 

Our Gippsland Campus offers a range of exciting programs for regional students. Located within easy walking distance of the town of Churchill, a bus ride from Morwell and Traralgon and only two hours south-east of Melbourne, the Gippsland Campus offers the benefits of a regional lifestyle with city access. 

Our Wimmera Campus provides a wide range of programs for students throughout Horsham, Ararat, Stawell and Western Victoria. 

The University also runs the Nanya Environmental Research Station in Western New South Wales.

Providing strong, practical knowledge and extensive experience in the development and supply of innovative, commercial solutions, our staff have undertaken and overseen major national and international projects within both academic and commercial environments. 

Proud of its past while firmly focused on the future, student-centred and commercially capable, Federation University Australia continues to excel.
