Congratulations and welcome to the Federation University Australia community. 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.

Today is no different. We are resilient and ready to shape the future. Join us on the journey!

We are delighted to work in association with Australian Technical & Management College to enable students from around the world to obtain a valued qualification from us.

You are now part of a 20,000 strong network of Federation students, across Australia and the world, ready to thrive in a digital post-COVID world.

Our purpose is to transform lives and enhance communities. A qualification from Federation University or Federation TAFE does just that.

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 works 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.

This all combines with our internationally-connected research collaborations that are focused on solving real-world problems and making a difference in people’s lives. Our research is world-class and rated well above or above world class in 11 disciplines.

We invite you to become part of our history.
