With a distinguished history dating back to 1870, we are one of Australia’s oldest universities, known today for our modern approach to teaching and learning. For 150 years, we have been reaching out to new communities, steadily building a generation of independent thinkers. As a dual-sector university with the largest network of campuses across Victoria (Ballarat, Berwick, Gippsland and the Wimmera), we are uniquely positioned to provide pathways from vocational education and skills training at Federation TAFE, through to higher education programs. Our areas of study are categorised into seven broad fields - education, business, engineering, information technology, arts, nursing and health and life sciences. With such generous choice, you’ll have the ability to explore your passions and shape who you are to influence your future. Our exceptional services and online resources such as our Student Academic and Study Support team, study skills website, Academic Skills & Knowledge Service, mentors program, tutoring, online study groups and studiosity (an online tutoring and writing feedback service), are what also makes us a preferred choice.
