FTI - Federation Technology Institute

The language school FTI - Federation Technology Institute was founded in Melbourne, Australia in 1991. The school is a boutique, architect-designed language learning centre founded in 1991.

English study at the centre has been opened to international students since 2008. Both International and Australian students have the opportunity to get to know each other through social activities and can help one another as they learn each other’s languages. The school is ideally situated in a charming, tree-lined street in the heart of Melbourne.


Staff and teachers know all the students personally which makes it very easy for them to settle in and feel at home. With an average of around 100 students and lots of activities, students will make friends easily and become part of the school's community.
