Agent Resources

Agent commissions

QUT’s formal agents are entitled to claim commission on any successful enrolment that has resulted from an application made by a student through their organisation in accordance with provisions of their recruitment agreement.

Invoice requirements

To claim commission, you must submit (an) invoice(s) addressed to QUT — ensuring that you write QUT on the invoice — that includes the following:

  • invoice date
  • invoice number
  • student’s semester of commencement
  • student’s family name and given name
  • student’s QUT ID number and/or date of birth
  • course code
  • course fee (per semester)
  • course duration
  • amount of commission per student
  • total commission claimed
  • banking details for electronic funds transfer
  • supplier name, address, email and contact details
  • GST (if applicable).

Commissions associated with English Language Program (ELP) Courses through QUT International College (e.g. QE05 – QE45; QC10; QC12; QC24) need to be listed on a separate invoice from non-English Language Program Degree Courses. DO NOT put ELP courses and non-ELP courses on the same invoice, even if it is for the same student.

All amounts are to be listed in Australian dollars. Please note that invoices should not be sent for applications currently in the admissions process. Please be advised that following the census date, a commission payable report will be sent out for agent review. Please issue a single corresponding invoice (in PDF format) for payment after reviewing the commission payable report.

Bank account details/Supplier Maintenance Form

If you have not claimed commissions for a while, it would be useful for you to include a completed Supplier Maintenance form with your commission invoice.

To avoid delays in payment, please advise us with any changes to banking details immediately. This should be done by completing a new Supplier Maintenance Form and emailing it to

Download the supplier maintenance form.

Please be advised that QUT will distribute commission payments to one bank account only. To limit the complexity of organising commission payments for all agents, the following rules to agent bank accounts apply:

  • Agent comprised of head office only (no other branches) — one bank account only
  • Agent comprised of head office plus one or more branches in the same country — one bank account only
  • An agent with one or more branches in other countries — one bank account in each country is allowed.
