English Entry Requirements 2014

We have made important changes to the English Language Requirements for 2014.

Application fee

There is no application fee for international students who apply directly to Federation University Australia.

Living expenses

Living expenses are significantly lower than in the large Australian capital cities. Single students would normally require approximately AU$18,610 per year for living expenses. This covers housing, food, transport, clothing and some modest entertainment.


Scholarships for International Students are not currently available through Federation University Australia. 

Tuition fees

Full-fee paying students will retain the annual tuition fee that applied to their year of commencement for the cohort duration.

Weather and climate

Summers in Victoria are warm to hot during the day, but usually cool down at night. The average daytime temperature in summer ranges around the mid 20 degrees Celsius but may reach 35 degrees Celsius or higher. Spring and Autumn are usually mild and pleasant. Winter is cold and often wet. It may snow lightly once or twice a year. Daytime temperatures in Winter may be between 10 and 15 degrees Celsius while at night the temperature may be as low as zero degrees Celsius.
