Upfront Commission Payments

Agents attending a conference

Study Group is committed to being the first choice education partner, and to delivering industry-leading standards. We pay all commission in one upfront payment to our partners.*

Details can be found in the agents’ Study Group Partner Agreement. These commission payments will only be available if Agents agree to the updated Terms & Conditions (version 17.01). From January 2017, Study Group cannot complete enrolments unless our agents have accepted the terms of the agreement.

Four upfront payments a year for Higher Education students

For Higher Education students, these commission payments are made four times a year on fixed dates. See the payment schedule below.

Agent are paid in full for each course a student enrols in

These payments includes the entire commission due for each course of study as long as the student has paid their pre-arrival fees before they start their course. Commission is added to the relevant quarterly payment once a student has started their course (refer to the payment schedule below for the deadlines). For the payment to be included, students must have paid their pre-arrival fees before they start their course. However, students do not need to have paid the fees for their whole course.

When will these commission payments be made?

For Higher Education students, payments are made four times a year in February, May, August and November. There is no change to Career Education commission payments at the moment.
