Federation University Australia (FedUni) is a modern university, which was first established in 1870, as the School of Mines, Ballarat, making it the third oldest tertiary institution in Australia. With over 130 years of tradition and excellence, FedUni continues to serve its students whether they wish to advance their current knowledge, or pursue a completely different career.

One of FedUni's values is ‘excellence through effort’; this applies not only to our students, but to FedUni as a whole. With a growing reputation for sound, relevant research by our academics, this added knowledge is passed on to all FedUni students, whatever course they undertake.

MIT offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs at its Melbourne and Sydney campuses in association with FedUni. The partnership between the FedUni and MIT involves FedUni controlling the quality of the courses and conferring the qualifications, whilst MIT provides the facilities, lecturers, tutors and student services. All academic staff at MIT are approved to teach by FedUni. Students enrolled in FedUni courses at MIT, attend MIT campuses as FedUni enrolled students and upon successful completion awarded with FedUni degrees.
