International student support
We're here to help
From pre-arrival information and orientation activities, to social programs, personal support and referrals to other services we are here to help international students to succeed at Federation University. No question is too big or too small, and we are your first point of contact if you're unsure about anything.
Our University services remain open and available during the COVID-19 outbreak, but are transitioning to phone and online. Please contact us on +61 3 5327 9446, or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need a face-to-face appointment, please let us know.
Federation University has introduced a Coronavirus Special Assistance Scheme to help international students who have incurred extra costs as a result of COVID-19. Please note that this is only available for students at our Ballarat, Berwick, Brisbane and Gippsland campuses. Students studying at partner locations should contact student support at their campus for assistance.
We work closely with other University services and community organisations to ensure that international students get the support they need. We also run a student committee which operates as a peer support, and advises us on the Federation student experience.

We know that language difficulties can often be the most challenging part of study for students from non-English-speaking backgrounds. Find out about the range of supports available to assist you to climb over the language barrier!
Finding the right accommodation is such an important part of life at university. Whether you're keen to live on our on-campus residences, in local rented accommodation or looking for a houseshare, we can provide you with information on where to look and how to make sure you're renting safely.
Did you know over 18% of our students were born overseas and 12% have a first language that is not English? Federation University is a welcoming and diverse place to study no matter where you're from.
