As a representative agent of University of Sydney Centre for English Teaching (CET) it is important that you know about your responsibilities and also that you require an agreement in order to actively represent CET.

CET strives to provide a professional service and in doing so expects this same service to be supplied through its representation. We believe that you as an Agent will uphold this professionalism and as a whole we will both continue to help prospective students to reach their desired outcome.

CET is required to comply with ESOS Act National Code. For more information please visit the Australian Government Department of Education and Training website.

Part D Standard 4.5 states that this requires the registered provider must take immediate corrective and preventative action upon the registered provider becoming aware of an education agent being negligent, careless or incompetent or being engaged in false, misleading or unethical advertising and recruitment practices, including practices that could harm the integrity of Australian education and training.

As a representative you need to be familiar with your responsibilities in relation to counselling or advising prospective students.


Under Australian Government legislation, it is necessary that all agent representatives hold a current formal agreement in order to recruit prospective students for CET.

If you would like to become a representative agent, please to find out if you are eligible.

Current representative agents will be ranked according to their performance and in doing so will receive either a one or three year agreement. This performance will be based on the following:

  1. Student enrolments
  2. Agent student relationships (including quality of counselling and advice)
  3. Agent/CET relationship
  4. Agents understanding the enrolment process and Department of Immigration and Border Protection regulations (including sending completed applications and necessary documentation)

Once your agreement has expired, CET will send through a new agreement via email which you will need to sign and return. Once this has been received a certificate of representation will be sent to you. If we do not receive the agreement, we will assume you no longer wish to represent CET.


CET only pays commission once the student has commenced their program. In order to claim commission, agents must send through and invoice to our .
