In 2010, AU entered into an articulation agreement with Federation University Australia (Formerly University of Ballarat) in Victoria, Australia.

The Bachelor of Information Technology course of FUA is accredited at Professional Level by the Australian Computer Science Society. FUA also houses two IBM facilities: the IBM Southern Regional Data Centre and the IBM Regional Software Solutions Centre.
