Any person who is formally engaged by Ultimate Institute of Australia (UIA) to promote its courses with the intention of recruiting students for UIA shall be required to be approved by the CEO who shall initiate an ‘Education Agent Agreement’.
All persons approved as an Education Agent shall be required to sign an ‘Education Agent Agreement’ prior to undertaking any promoting activities on behalf of UIA.
UIA will not enter into an agreement with any Education Agent or potential Education Agent if it knows or reasonably suspects the Education Agent to be:
- Engaged in, or to have previously been engaged in, dishonest practices, including the deliberate attempt to recruit a student where this clearly conflicts with the obligations of registered providers under Standard 7 (Transfer between registered providers);
- Facilitating the enrolment of a student who the education agent believes will not comply with the conditions of his or her student visa;
- Using Provider Registration and International Students Management System (PRISMS) to create Confirmations of Enrolment for other than a bona fide student; or
- Providing immigration advice where not authorised under the Migration Act 1958 to do so.
All agents who are approved by UIA and have a signed agreement as an Education Agent shall be paid an agents fee as outlined in their specific agreement.
The agreement, conditions, and authorisation to promote UIA relates to the Education Agent named in the agreement and, any sub-contractors or employees of the Education Agent must be authorised by UIA.
The original signed agent agreement shall be kept in the Education Agents file and the Education Agent shall also receive a copy.
