TOP CONTENT - Student Advocacy

Understand the process

We can help you navigate your way around University legislation, policies and procedures.

Know your rights

We can provide information about your rights and responsibilities at FedUni

Prepare you for hearings

We can help you to write letters and prepare you for interviews and hearings.

Student Advocacy exists to give clear, independent advice and confidential support for students navigating Federation University processes and policies, including all types of appeals and complaints. We're here for students if things go wrong between you and the University, or if you have concerns with your experience. Please click on our "Service Charter" below, or the links on the left for the full range of things we can help with.

Student Advocacy is paid for by the Student Services and Amenities Fee, and we support all students enrolled in Federation University/Federation TAFE courses. This includes International and Domestic students and those studying on-campus, online or through a Partner Provider.
