Federation University Australia is the only regionally headquartered, multi-sector university in Australia. With locations in the west and east of Victoria, the University has five campuses located at Mt Helen, SMB and Camp Street in Ballarat, as well as in Gippsland and the Wimmera.
Federation University Australia offers the best of both worlds combining a strong tradition of more than 146 years of tertiary education with the freedom and dynamism that comes with being a relatively new University with close links to local industry and technology.
The University has up to 25,000 students, of whom about 7,500 are international students. About 25 per cent of its students are studying for postgraduate qualifications. The University draws its domestic students from across Australia and especially from a broad area of regional Victoria in Ballarat, Western Victoria and Gippsland. All of these communities have significantly lower participation rates in postsecondary education than the national average.
The vibrancy and community spirit of the region
Ballarat is able to draw on the resources of Melbourne and Western Victoria to create its own unique spirit and character.
