Incoming students

'Incoming students' are students who are enrolled in a university overseas, and who wish to add to the breadth of their educational experience by coming to Federation University for a semester or two, and count the studies towards their home degree.

Exchange program

We have exchange agreements with a number of overseas universities.

These agreements allow students from the exchange institution to study at Federation for one, or sometimes two, semesters.

Exchange students will continue to pay the tuition and student activity fees at their home university, rather than paying tuition fees to Federation. This provides an opportunity for students from overseas to continue their studies while experiencing the adventure and benefits of student life and travel to Australia.

Study abroad program

The Study Abroad program is available for students who are not covered by an exchange agreement with Federation University. Normally, Study Abroad students are required to pay tuition fees upfront to study with us.

The Study Abroad program allows students to experience the adventure and the benefits of student life and travel in Australia, along with the opportunity to continue their academic program while being immersed in Australian culture, enrolled in classes with Australian students and undertaking fieldwork and related experiences.

Please contact us for admissions processes.

Important information – OSHC

If you are from Norway, Sweden or Belgium, you may not require Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). More information can be found on the Immigration website

All other international students are required by the Australian government to have OSHC. Other forms of health insurance (such as travel insurance) will not be sufficient. It is a condition of your student visa that you have appropriate cover from your date of arrival to the end of your visa. FedUni can purchase health insurance on your behalf; please contact us for more information.
