Program and course information

From 30 June 2023, Federation Technology Institute will progressively transition all remaining online classes in on-campus programs back to face-to-face, on campus delivery.


Commencing from the 30th of June 2023, Federation Technology Institute is embarking on a gradual transition to reinstate in-person, on-campus delivery for the remaining online classes within our programs.


In response to the uncertainties brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Federation Technology Institute (FTI) made the decision to temporarily shift to online class delivery. This measure was adopted to prioritize the safety of both our students and staff, and it proved effective in safeguarding our community. As the global and local responses to the pandemic have evolved, we have observed the careful return of numerous on-campus classes and activities.


As of the term 1 of 2023, the majority of classes in FTI programs are already being conducted in-person on our campuses. However, a few courses are still offering select online classes during this transitional phase. In alignment with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), which updated its guidelines for fully online delivery to overseas students in October 2022, all education providers are expected to adhere to the ESOS National Code by the 30th of June 2023, when practical and safe conditions permit. Consequently, FTI will be progressively moving the remaining online classes within on-campus programs back to face-to-face, on-campus instruction starting from the aforementioned date.


The essence of the Federation Technology Institute experience is rooted in hands-on practical learning. The reintroduction of on-campus class delivery enables students to benefit from the supportive staff, enriching learning environments, dedicated equipment, and the multitude of vibrant extracurricular opportunities that extend beyond the classroom, encompassing student events, fitness amenities, library facilities, and more.


While classes will once again take place on campus, digital learning will continue to be an integral aspect of the FTI learning journey. Students will retain access to the Learning Management System (LMS) to retrieve digital learning resources, such as readings and videos, to bolster their educational endeavours.


Should you have inquiries, our student services team is readily available to discuss life at FTI and provide guidance.

Frequently Asked Questions:
  • How can I access information regarding the shift to face-to-face classes?

    Federation Technology Institute will dispatch regular emails with pertinent details about the transition to face-to-face classes during both Term 1 and Term 2 of 2023. Please ensure to monitor your email, as occasionally, messages may inadvertently land in spam or junk folders due to email settings and security configurations.

  • Can I continue online studies post-June 2023 if I’m presently in my home country?

    For students currently enrolled with an Australian student visa, arrangements must be made for a timely return to Australia. The Australian Government’s relaxation of border restrictions for overseas students means that, with certain exceptions, attendance of face-to-face classes is mandatory from the 30th of June 2023 onwards.

  • As a new student, must I attend campus for orientation?

    New students are indeed required to attend orientation on campus. Should you experience any health concerns on the day of orientation, please reach out to our student services team for guidance.

  • Can I defer my course’s start date?

    Deferring your course start date might impact your student visa. It is advisable to consult with our student services team before making a decision, as Federation Technology Institute’s policies concerning deferral, suspension, and cancellation are applicable.

  • Can international students on an Australian student visa request a leave of absence?

    International students facing compassionate or compelling circumstances, including COVID-19-related situations, might be eligible for a leave of absence. Requirements and evidence details are provided under compassionate and compelling circumstances. If these criteria are met, application for a leave of absence can proceed. However, approval might necessitate future renewal of the student visa.

This communication serves as a comprehensive overview of the changes underway at Federation Technology Institute. We remain committed to delivering a quality learning experience while prioritizing the safety and wellbeing of our student community.
