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 are the nation's first regional, multi-sector university and the third oldest site of higher learning in Australia.

FedUni offers an increasing number of higher education, TAFE, secondary schooling and research opportunities. With campuses in Ballarat, Berwick, Brisbane, Gippsland and the Wimmera, our programs are also delivered online and via a range of partner institutes across Australia and around the globe. A student support centre is also based in Malaysia.

The University has around 20,000 international and domestic students. We are committed to serving regional Victorian communities, yet have a broad national and international outlook. We offer the best of both worlds; combining a strong tradition of tertiary education with the freedom and dynamism that comes with being a multi-sector university with close links to local industry and technology. 

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 eduation and training.

We also are known by our top ranking for student support, 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.

FedUni hosts Australia’s largest regional technology park accommodating more than 30 companies, including its signature tenant, IBM. The University’s Tech Park Central in the heart of Ballarat enables businesses to have a presence at our SMB Campus. The University also runs the Nanya Environmental Research Station in Western New South Wales.

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