Headquartered in regional Victoria, with campuses in Ballarat, Gippsland, the Wimmera and Berwick in Melbourne, FedUni’s standing is based on nearly 150 years of education delivery.

A new Berwick Campus caters for the growing south-east Melbourne area, while a new Brisbane Campus and student support centre in Malaysia cater to the international student market.

FedUni embraces the freedom and dynamism that come from being a progressive university with close links to industry, business, communities and technology.

It is also recognised as a welcoming and friendly university, with students drawn from regional centres and metropolitan cities as well as from overseas.

Known for its supportive, inclusive environment, FedUni offers affordable study options (including online), learning assistance to help you stay at uni, small class sizes, friendly staff and accessible academic support. We are also one of few universities that offer free on-campus parking for students.

Our students have the opportunity to stay on campus with a range of residential options. The university places great emphasis on the quality of its teaching and learning, the student experience, and importantly, employability once you have graduated.
