1.5.1 Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to set out the framework for the appointment and management of international recruitment representatives.

QUT employs the services of a large number of international recruitment representatives around the world to assist in its international marketing and recruitment activity. The appointment of, and ongoing communication with, international recruitment representatives is managed by QUT International on behalf of the University.

International recruitment representatives act as QUT agents only for the purpose of international student recruitment and may not represent themselves as having any other function within the University. They are bound, inasmuch as they act on the University's behalf, by the rules and provisions of the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act) and the associated National Code of Practice.

International recruitment representatives are remunerated by the University through a number of mechanisms which may include payment for specified services such as dedicated promotions, advertising, and commissions.
