Publishing performance data for international education agents

The feds are asking for advice on publishing performance of international education agents. This delivers on an October commitment by Education Minister Dan Tehan.

The Commonwealth is now providing institutions with data on agents they use, covering individuals’ study outcomes, including completions and visa application success/failures. Agent performance will be published on-line mid-year.

The Department of Education and Training wants to know what providers want published in what format and when. “It could be located with the international student data collection on the department’s website, on the (Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students) website, with advice to students on choosing an education agent on the Study in Australia website, or somewhere completely new … publication could occur quarterly, twice yearly or annually.”

DET invites responses by February 8.
