My personal and social support

We are here to support you to settle in, meet new friends, get to know the local area and succeed whilst you're at Federation University.

International student support

As always, we are your first point of contact if you need help but don't know where to find it. We provide orientation, social and cultural activities and trips for all multicultural students, and can put you in touch with local services and community groups as well. We're also here for you if you have any problems with your course, accommodation or personal life. We'll either be able to help you ourselves, or if not we can put you in touch with someone else who can. Find out more >
