FedUni About us

Welcome from the Vice-Chancellor and President

Federation University Australia (FedUni) is a modern, progressive university providing high-quality vocational and higher education across a national and international network of campuses. The university has a distinguished history as the University of Ballarat, one of Australia’s oldest higher education institutions. It became Federation University Australia in January 2014 upon amalgamation with Monash University’s Gippsland Campus.

Our campuses span Ballarat, Berwick, Gippsland and the Wimmera in Victoria. A new campus in Brisbane, Queensland, provides further opportunities for international students and student mobility.

FedUni equips students with the necessary knowledge, skills and aptitude for further study, the world of work and to be effective global citizens. We have an outstanding record for teacher quality and graduate employment, with a five-star rating from the Australian Good Universities Guide for Student Support, Social Equity and Skills Development. Flexible study options make accessing our courses more convenient for those who wish to combine work and study commitments.

Our university is committed to providing study opportunities for students from a diverse range of backgrounds, nationalities and ages. Our graduates are well prepared to make a difference to the communities in which they choose to live and work and many become distinguished alumni of the university in recognition of their leadership and impact.

Research activity at Federation University Australia focuses on issues of national and international importance, with local relevance and impact. Sports Science research is among the world’s best, with a Shanghai Rankings in the 101 to 150 bracket for 2017 and a top one hundred ranking for academic subjects in hospitality, leisure, sport and tourism disciplines.

Federation University Australia is a friendly and supportive community in which to work and study. I hope you will explore our wide range of vocational, undergraduate, postgraduate and higher research degree offerings and consider how we might help you achieve your ambitions.
