Welcome to the home of resources for agents and partners representing James Cook University (JCU). JCU establish partnerships with Education Agents they believe share in the vision of delivering quality services, experiences, and education to students.
As an agent, you have an important role of representing JCU with integrity and accuracy to students in the pursuit of a quality international education. To support you as a representative of JCU we have made information and resources available online and have developed an Agent Training Portal (for current partners only).
JCU uses Ascent One to manage agent details and to send a communication, such as the quarterly Partner Newsletter, or updates about new developments or important information. It’s required that your details are current and maintained so that you receive this information. If you would like to receive communication directly from JCU, contact the International Development team.
Ascent One is also used to maintain the agent list on the JCU website, making your offices and contact details visible to prospective students. Ensure you keep each office branch and staff contact details up to date, and that you add any new offices to Ascent One and let the JCU team know.
