Payment methods

Outside Australia

Our preferred payment method for students paying their fees from overseas is with secured online payment via credit card or telegraphic transfer.

Federation University has partnered with Western Union Business Solutions to provide international students with a fast and secure payment service. Western Union Business Solutions is a web-based service which allows you to make your tuition payments as either an international telegraphic transfer (in your local currency, where available) or via VISA/Mastercard (with the option of paying in your local currency).

Note: every country has different banking laws, which will determine available currencies.

To make an online payment you will need:

  • access to a printer
  • your student ID/reference number
  • your international student offer and acceptance agreement; or
  • your student fee invoice / deposit slip
