Overall Rating :

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.



Academic entry requirements

Finding the right place to live is one of the most important decisions you make while you study.

It's probably going to be the place you spend the most amount of time, and can influence who you make friends with. Living on campus at one of our residences is a great option, especially for new students, as your travel time is reduced, you have a large group of people to make friends with, and there are a range of great activities and support to help you settle in. You even have the option to have your evening meal provided during the week. Newly-commencing international students are entitled to apply for a scholarship, which covers your rent for the whole year (term-time only). 

If you prefer to live off campus, the local communities have many options, from individual rooms in a share house to renting an entire house or apartment with a group of friends. Our guide to finding accommodation can be found here: Finding Accommodation (pdf, 84kb)

Our top tips for safe renting are:

  • Know your rights and responsibilities as a tenant, and check with Consumer Affairs Victoria if you need advice: You should also download the 'RentRight' App for your phone.
  • Don't rent without a contract, and make sure that both you and the landlord sign it before you move in.
  • Don't sign anything or pay anything until you have personally inspected the house - Arrange to stay on campus or with friends for at least a week upon arrival while you find something permanent.
  • Use a reputable rental agent if possible - they all generally list properties on
  • All bonds (deposits) should be paid through the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority (RTBA), not directly to your landlord. This protects both you and the landlord:
  • If you're not sure about something, get some advice - you can drop in to see us in the office, or contact Consumer Affairs.
