Federation University Australia (FedUni) is Australia's newest university built on a history of success. FedUni was created by bringing together the University of Ballarat and the Monash University Gippsland Campus. We were the first regional, multi-sector university and the third oldest site of higher learning in Australia.
Federation University Australia's history goes back to the gold rush era of the 1850s. Tertiary education at Ballarat began with the establishment of the School of Mines and Industries in 1870, making it Australia's third oldest tertiary institution. In 1870 the Founders Hall at the University of Ballarat was built. The organization remained in that form until the 1960s when it was split into two institutions.
On September 6, 2013, the Victorian Parliament passed legislation to establish Federation University Australia, comprising the University of Ballarat as well as the former Gippsland campus of Monash University. New students commencing their studies at the Gippsland campus from 2014 will study under Federation University Australia. Current students at the campus will be able to complete their degree as a Monash University student.
Ballarat University achieved a maximum five-star rating for teaching quality in the Good Universities Guide consecutively from 2010-2014. FedUni has been ranked four-stars for graduate placement by the Good Universities Guide. This placed the University in the top tier of Australian regional universities. Ballarat University's teaching performance also was ranked in the top ten of Australian universities according to data released by the Federal Department of Education, Science and Training in 2005.

Monash University's Gippsland Campus also contributed to Monash University being ranked as sixth in the world for Education, according to the QS World University Rankings by Subject.
