Federation University Australia

Federation University Australia (FedUni) is Australia’s newest university built on a history of success. FedUni was created by bringing together the University of Ballarat and the Monash University Gippsland Campus. We are the only regional, multi-sector university and the third oldest site of higher learning in Australia.

FedUni offers access to higher education, TAFE, secondary schooling and research opportunities. With campuses in Ballarat, Gippsland and the Wimmera, the University’s programs are also delivered online and via a range of partner institutes across Australia and around the globe.

FedUni has around 23,000 international and domestic students. We are committed to serving regional Victorian communities, yet have a broad national and international outlook. FedUni offers the best of both worlds; combining a strong tradition of 144 years of tertiary education with the freedom and dynamism that comes with being a multi-sector University with close links to local industry and technology.
