How much will I earn as an Education Expert?
The short answer: the average payment for placing one student is in the vicinity of AUD $1,000 to $1,500.
You can expect to spend around 10 to 15 hours with each student (depending on how much support the individual student requires), meaning you could conceivably estimate your earnings at around $100 per hour. It's important to remember that this will vary significantly for Experts depending on how skilled you are in your work.
The longer (and, as always, more accurate!) answer, is that your commissions are based on a percentage of what your student’s fees are in their first year of study. This percentage is calculated based on whether the educational provider has a direct or indirect relationship with Sofiri, and what course level your student is studying.
