The university also has campuses in Ararat, Horsham, Stawell, Churchill, Berwick, and Brisbane, as well as online technical and further education(TAFE) courses and Horsham’s Higher Education Nursing program.
In 2017, 80% of undergraduate students study full-time and on campus, which is unique for a regional university, and 35% of students are international students.
Federation University is the fourth oldest tertiary education institution in Australia, having begun under predecessor institutions in 1870, during the Victorian gold rush. With the merger between the University of Ballarat and Monash University’s Gippsland campus in 2013, the university changed its name to Federation University from 2014.
On 6 September 2013, the Victorian Parliament passed legislation to establish Federation University Australia, The name change officially began in 2014. The then Vice-Chancellor justified the name change as an attempt to broaden the reach of the university nationally and internationally, and in fairness to the campuses outside Ballarat. The name was also the preferred name within the university, compared to ‘State University of Victoria’, ‘Eureka University’, ‘Robert Menzies University’ or ‘Vida Goldstein University’.
