Make your Mark at Federation

The results are in! For the second year in a row Federation University graduates are more likely to get a full-time job and earn a higher starting salary than graduates from any other Victorian university, according to The Good Universities Guide 2021* ratings.

Released in August 2020, the ratings reflect Federation University’s strength in providing the highest quality teaching and support throughout a student’s education in order to equip students with the skills that employers are seeking in an employee.

We are ranked the number one university in Australia for two categories:

    #1 in Australia for First Generation Student Enrolments
    #1 in Australia for Teaching Quality (Postgraduate)

We are the number one university in Victoria in eleven other categories, including:

    #1 in Victoria for Graduate Full-time Employment
    #1 in Victoria for Starting Salary for Graduates ($63,000 average)
    #1 in Victoria for Student Support (undergraduate)
    #1 in Victoria for Student Support (postgraduate)
    #1 in Victoria for Teaching Quality (undergraduate)
    #1 in Victoria for Learner Engagement (postgraduate)
    #1 in Victoria for Overall Experience (postgraduate)
    #1
    in Victoria for Social Equity
    #1
    in Victoria for Student Teacher Ratio
    #1
    in Victoria for Skills Development (undergraduate)
    #1
    in Victoria for Skills Development (postgraduate)

In addition to these number one rankings, we achieved the highest five-star rating in learner engagement, learning resources and overall undergraduate experience, placing Federation in the top 20 per cent of Australian universities in these categories.

These results provide recognition of the high-quality education that we offer and our support of widening participation in tertiary education, providing economic and social benefits to our university communities.

These changes are already having an impact, with today’s Good Universities Guide ratings building on the Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) ratings released in March, which saw the quality of research at Federation University rated as well above world standard for the first time in seven research areas.
