Hi, this is Dan from the International team at Federation University Australia. Federation University is an Australian government university, with a history dating back to 1870. Based in the beautiful regional city of Ballarat, just an hour on the train from Melbourne, we also now have campuses in Melbourne itself, Brisbane and the regional Victorian area of Gippsland.
