Information for agents

UNE International provides information for agents so that they can support our overseas students. When you are a UNE-approved agent, we offer you:

  • High-profile student exhibitions and interview programs in an advertised venue
  • Student interviews in your office
  • Briefings from faculty and course experts
  • Advertising (in conjunction with your efforts)
  • Regular communications and updates

How to become an agent

We may approach you directly and invite you to become an agent. Otherwise, you can complete the Expression of Interest (EOI) form below. All EOI's are assessed 4 times a year, every 3 months. If UNE International wishes to continue the discussion, a member of the recruitment team will contact you and send the application form.

The Agent Application Form and supporting documentation can be emailed to imp@une.edu.au

Each application takes approximately four weeks to assess. You will be notified in writing if you are successful or unsuccessful. The decision of the Director, UNE International is final.

Prospective Educational Advisors must only be invited to apply by the Director of UNE International and must attend for interview.



Agent agreements

If you are selected, we will appoint you as our representative for an initial term of two years. We will prepare an Agent Agreement in duplicate for execution and exchange.

Upon execution of the agreement

Your details will appear on UNE International's web page so that students can search authorised agents by country. We will also add your details and a copy of the signed agreement to our Easy Agent Database.

Certificate of Appointment

Once the agreement has been executed, we will send you a Certificate of Appointment as a duly appointed and authorised representative of UNE for the purpose of recruiting international students. The Director, UNE International signs all certificates which outline:

  • Your business name and country
  • The period of appointment
  • Your CRICOS Provider Code for the university

Communications and support

As an approved agent, we will send you a monthly newsletter that keeps you up-to-date with UNE news. The newsletter also lets you know about changes to courses, enrolment dates and visa and application processing requirements. Read the monthly news to find out when UNE International staff and academics plan to visit your county.

We will also be in contact throughout the month to make sure you have all the information you need to look after our students.

You are welcome to contact our administration officer at any time, to check the status of your students' applications. And, of course, we encourage you to visit UNE International as often as possible to familiarise yourself with our offering.

Come to UNE, and we will show you:

  • Armidale and surrounds
  • Accommodation options
  • Campus and facilities

Our faculty experts run regular briefings, as do UNE International staff. Attend presentations on:

  • The UNE admissions process
  • Legislative and visa changes
  • International student services

We can also arrange meetings with our students so that you get a first-hand account of what it's like to study at UNE.

Performance monitoring

The Director, UNE International, conducts an annual review of all agents which includes:

  • Quality of applications and conversion rates
