Welcome to Federation University

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!

You’ll be 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.
