Agent information

What to look for when choosing an Educational Agent

Students can decide whether or not they want to use an educational agent.  Agents do not have special access to our programs and services – and cannot guarantee your admission to Fanshawe College or guarantee you a study permit.  Fanshawe College cannot monitor the business practices of all independent educational agencies, so please note that using an agency is the sole responsibility of the student and his/her family.

  • Talk to friends and family living in Canada;
  • Ask any potential agent to show you their valid Fanshawe College Agency Certificate and/or Agreement;
  • Discuss the services they provide and the fees for each service – and ask for the information in writing;
  • If it sounds too good to be true, you can always ask Fanshawe College about it;
  • Do not leave original academic documents, passport or tuition fee payments with the agent;
  • Tuition fees are always made payable to Fanshawe College – never to the agent;
  • You own the original "Letter of Acceptance" to Fanshawe – and the agent must give you the original document;
  • If you have any questions or concerns about any educational agents, please email:
