Federation University is one of Australia's oldest, yet we're modern and progressive in everything we do. While others look inwards, clinging to the familiar, we've been reaching out to new communities since 1890, steadily building a generation of independent thinkers united in the knowledge that they're greater together. We provide high-quality vocational and higher education across a national and international network of campuses and teaching locations. With our six domestic campuses stretching across Victoria - from the Wimmera and Ballarat, to Berwick and Gippsland - we're sure you'll find a campus that's right for you. A campus in Brisbane, Queensland, provides further opportunities for international students and student mobility. Flexible study options make accessing our courses more convenient for those who wish to combine work and study commitments Federation University allows students access to a range of TAFE and higher education programs, and improved pathways to move between these two tertiary levels. Our emphasis is on personal attention to students: academic, social and personal support and the development of flexible, innovative programs providing students with the knowledge and skills for both the workplace and life.
