At Federation University, the desire to transform lives and enhance communities informs everything we do. From research that improves people’s lives right around the world, to supporting our students to succeed at their studies and in life – we make a difference.

With campuses in Ballarat, Berwick, Brisbane, Gippsland and the Wimmera, we became Federation University in 2014 – a new entity bringing together almost 150 years of history from our predecessor institutions.

As a young university, we have the energy and optimism of youth combined with the knowledge and experience that comes from our history as one of the oldest universities in Australia, dating back to 1870.

We are a diverse community with over 24,000 domestic and international students and 110,000 alumni across Australia and the world. We are creating a Federation of independent thinkers, of like-minded individuals who are determined to make their mark.

As Victoria’s premier regional university, we have been educating Australia’s future leaders, innovators and thinkers for 150 years. We have been here for our communities through wars, disasters and times of strong economic growth. We provide the learning, innovation and research they need to survive and succeed.

We support our students to succeed and prepare them for the future. We are rated the number one university in Victoria for full-time employment and our graduates have the highest starting salaries. We are rated the number one university in Victoria for the way we support our students, develop their skills and for the exceptional quality of our teachers. We are number one in all of Australia for postgraduate teaching quality.

Federation drives regional economic growth and builds our communities. We work with you to make learning something you can do, whoever you are and wherever you are on your lifelong learning journey. We help you develop the skills you need to follow your passion.

Our graduates thrive, because Federation is deeply engaged with industries and employers.
