Gippsland Campus activities

Open Day is your opportunity to find out more about Federation University Australia at our Gippsland Campus.

A range of program, general and scholarship information sessions will run throughout the day – to help you discover a little more about the FedUni community - as well as help you to understand the application processes, fees, support services, and all the other things you need to know about before you start university.

Along with program and application information you'll also have the opportunity to check out a range of displays and demonstrations – you can also try your hand at some of the activities that our students participate in throughout the course of their studies.
